DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — American Express is sending a very loud message to a Delray Beach resident who apparently hasn’t been paying her bill: paying off your Amex card isn’t optional.

In a filing obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, American Express says that Denise Katz of the 7000 block of Vivaldi Lane in Delray Beach owes $39,361.45 plus court costs. While her card is in the name of “Complete AV Solutions, Inc.,” the card issuer says there’s no question about who is responsible for payment. It’s Katz, and she hasn’t made even the minimum payment in quite some time.

According to the filing in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, Katz’ problems keep getting worse. She’s been assessed $6,416.16 in interest during 2022 and $234 in fees. Her balance as of August was $38,219.44, but $986 in new interest brings her current total to $39,361.45. Her minimum payment due is $8,878.

American Express makes the point in its filing that if Katz pays just the minimum due moving forward, it will take 31 years to pay off the debt and she’ll pay a total of $89,674. The smart move: pay it off now.

The lawsuit states that Katz is using an “Executive Business Card.” The Florida Secretary of State says that “Complete AV Solutions, Inc.,” remains in business at the Vivaldi Lane address.
