Seeking to collect on a past due account, American Express Centurion Bank has filed suit against Beaumont local Regina Montes.
The suit was filed Jan. 25 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the lawsuit, the parties entered into a card member agreement. The balance owing on the account is $12,538.49.
