Facts

On September 6, 2006, Bartos received a debt collection letter from Revenue Group that demanded her to pay $1,306.00 allegedly owed by her to University Hospitals. [Docs. 3, 6.] Bartos refused the Revenue Group’s demand and retained, as counsel, Michael D. Silver of the UAW-Ford  Legal Services Plan (“Silver”). [Doc. 6.]

On September 15, 2006, Attorney Silver wrote to Defendant Revenue Group and requested that it: “1. Cease all further communications with [Bartos], and 2. Provide [Silver] with verification of the purported debt, and 3. Provide [Silver] with the name and address of the original creditor, if different from the current creditor.” [Doc. 1-4.] On September 18, 2006, Defendant received Silver’s notice to “desist” contact with Bartos. [Doc. 8-2.] Nevertheless, on October 31, 2006, Defendant sent another dunning letter directly to Bartos in a second effort to collect the alleged debt. [Doc. 1.]
