FIA Card Services has filed a lawsuit against Beaumont resident Vickie Nguyen, alleging she refuses to pay a credit card balance of more than $17,000.
The suit was filed Oct. 23 in Jefferson County District Court.
Court records show that on Aug. 31 FIA Card Services sent a letter to the defendant demanding payment in full of the account. However, no further payments have been made.
“As of Sept. 25, 2012 there continues to be owed … an unpaid balance of 17,563.34,” the suit states, adding that the defendant breached her contract.
FIA Card Services claims that it is entitled to recover the account balance and all court costs, including attorney’s fees.
Carrollton attorney Michael Scott represents the company.
Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.
Case No. E193-395
