New IdentityTheft Scam

Updated


Plainview Rotarians got together for their weekly meeting which included the face-to-face meeting as well as a Zoom meeting for members who either could not meet in public or were not yet comfortable with returning to the public format.

Tiffany Gattis was presented as the club’s first Student of the Month (September). She is the daughter of Rotarian Leslie Gattis and his wife, Lori. Tiffany is a senior at Plainview High School where she is the captain of the varsity tennis team and alto section leader with the PHS A Capella Choir. She is a member of the PCMA guild Debutants, a Girl Scout Bronze and Silver awards recipient and a member and usher at the First United Methodist Church. Tiffany is a participant in Operation Serve with the Rotary Club each year and is a PAWS Pet Adoption volunteer. She helps make blankets for the residents of retirement homes, care packages for the women’s crisis center, and participates with Angel Tree and Red Kettle bell ringing. Her future plans are to go to college and study plant and soil science, with plans to open her own garden and floral shop.



The program was presented by Cynthia Davidson who is the managing attorney for the Plainview office of the Legal Aid of Northwest Texas organization.


Davidson said that the organization was founded in 1950 in Fort Worth and eventually merged with the office in Dallas. Plainview is home to one of 15 regional offices and serves 10 counties from Parmer and Bailey counties in the west to Hall and Motley counties in the east. She said that during the COVID-19 pandemic she and her fellow attorneys and staff have been working from home, but they do receive and respond to phone calls from their Plainview office number, 806-293-8491.

Davidson explained that her office helps low income groups and individuals who meet specific eligibility guidelines. They help clients with issues that include (but are not limited to): domestic violence, landlord/tenant issues, consumer protection/identity theft issues and others.


The organization is a non-profit and grants provide a portion of their funding. Davidson said she recently has received a grant to help with employment barriers. Those can include helping people who have had their driving licenses revoked get a special license that allows them to drive for the jobs, and overcoming non-disclosure orders if the job for which they are applying requires a criminal background check.

Following the program, the club dismissed and looked to the community for ways to show Service Above Self.
