GRETNA – A woman who voluntarily gave up her car after not being able to make payment any longer is facing suit over $12,000 in alleged losses her financier suffered in the matter.

Prestige Financial Services Inc. filed suit against Amy T. Bostic in the 24th Judicial District Court on July 14.

Prestige Financial Services Inc. contends that on Sept. 8, 2012 it provided financing to Bostic in the amount of $26,037.66 for a car she purchased in the state of Georgia before relocating to Jefferson Parish. The plaintiff asserts the last payment was made on the car on Aug. 20, 2013 and the defendant subsequently surrendered the vehicle, which was later auctioned off for a net amount of only $4,164. Consequently, Prestige Financial Services Inc. alleges it is owed $12,420.09 by Bostic.

The defendant is accused of breach of contract.

Damages in the amount of $12,420.09 plus interest is sought by the plaintiff.

Prestige Financial Services Inc. is represented by attorney Edward J. Bourdeau of Lafayette.

The case has been assigned to Division L Judge Donald A. Rowan Jr.

Case no. 740-242.
