Caine & Weiner Company, Inc. is facing a lawsuit filed by a New York man who claims the debt collector violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by failing to clearly indicate the name of his alleged creditor in a collection letter. The letter supposedly states “Re: ANTHEM” but does not indicate whether Anthem is the creditor to whom the alleged debt is owed. The plaintiff claims he cannot confidently determine how to respond to the letter because he is unsure who the defendant represents and to whom he should write a payment check.
