In Hernandez v. Guglielmo, 2012 WL 993676 (D.Nev. 2012), Judge George followed Camacho:
Neither the Ninth Circuit, nor apparently any other circuit, has directly addressed the issue of whether a debt collector violates § 1692g if the debt collector does not specifically inform the consumer that the consumer’s written notification or request pursuant to subsection (a)(4) or (a)(5) initiates the debt collector’s verification or creditor identification duties. However, in Camacho v. Bridgeport Financial, Inc., 430 F.3d 1078 (9th Cir.2005), the Ninth Circuit held that § 1692g(a)(3) does not impose a writing requirement on consumers. In reaching that conclusion, the court contrasted subsection (a)(3) with subsections (a)(4) and (a)(5) which, it noted in dictum, allowed debtors to “trigger the rights under subsections (a)(4) and (a)(5) only through written dispute.” Id. at 1081. Moreover, every district court to consider the issue has held that a debt collector violates § 1692g(a) by failing to inform consumers that requests under subsections (a)(4) and (a)(5) must be in writing. Osborn v. Ekpsz, LLC, 2011 WL 4479108 *8 (S.D.Tex.2011), Welker v. Law Office of Daniel J. Horwitz, 699 F.Supp.2d 1164, 1170 (S.D.Cal.2010). This court is persuaded by the principal reasoning for that unanimity. While § 1692g(a)(4) and (5) does not expressly prevent the debt collector from providing verification or identity information upon oral notification of the dispute, the debt collector must provide it upon written notification. Thus, by omitting the words, “in writing” or “written request” the debt collector does not effectively convey to the consumer his rights under the FDCPA. See York Gee Au Chan v. North American Collectors, Inc., 2006 WL 778642 *6 (N.D.Cal.2006); Osborne, 2011 WL 4479108 * 7; see also Camacho, 430 F.3d at 1082 (the FDCPA “assigns lesser rights to debtors who orally dispute a debt and greater rights to debtors who dispute it in writing.”). Accordingly, it was insufficient for defen-dant Guglielmo to merely provide the option to plaintiffs to dispute a debt or request creditor identity information by either written or oral means.
