FIA Card Services has filed a lawsuit against Beaumont resident Joseph Kirbow, alleging the man refuses to pay his credit card balance.
The suit was filed March 7 in Jefferson County District Court.
Court records show that on Nov. 16 FIA Card Services sent a letter to Kirbow demanding payment in full of the account. However, no further payments have been made.
"As Feb. 15 there continues to be owed ... an unpaid balance of $12,378.83," the suit states, adding that Kirbow breached his contract.
FIA Card Services claims that it is entitled to recover the account balance and all court costs, including attorney's fees.
The company is represented by Carrollton attorney Michael Scott.
Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court, has been assigned to the case.
Case No. D189-552
