FIA Card Services has filed a lawsuit against Beaumont resident John Hagger, alleging he refuses to pay a credit card balance of more than $37,000.
The suit was filed Aug. 22 in Jefferson County District Court.
Court records show that on June 13 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 July 30, 2013 there continues to be owed … an unpaid balance of 37,441.36,” the suit states, adding that the defendant breached his 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. E194-657
