Capital One claims a woman has failed to reimburse it more than $50,000 for a car she financed through the company.

Capital One Auto Finance Inc. filed suit Oct. 30 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Tifford Shields.

Capital One claims Shields entered into a retail installment contract to buy an automobile for $50,137.43.

However, Shields has paid no money toward the contract and now owes Capital One $50,487.43, according to the complaint.

In addition to the money it says it is due, Capital One is seeking costs.

Blitt and Ganies in Wheeling will be representing it.

St. Clair County Circuit Court case number: 09-L-588.
