From what you have stayed, it does not appear that you have a viable claim for slander. You may want to consider telling her in writing that you want to be left alone. If she continues to harass you, you can apply for a temporary order of protection. If she were to continue to contact you, she could be arrested and charged with Aggravated Stalking.
The likelihood that you would be sued is extremely low. It just isn't worth it for them to expend the resources. These letters are a cheap way for them to try and make a quick buck.
