Man exploited elderly woman by posing as contractor

Officers say he got more than $36,000 from the woman.

HAINES CITY, Fla. — Haines City police are searching for a Davenport man who they say exploited an 85-year-old woman out of more than $36,000 over the course of several months. 

Aber Anibal Rolon, 46, is charged with scheming to defraud in the amount of more than $20,000, exploitation of the elderly and presenting himself as a contractor without a license. Police say Rolon sent the woman six different bills totaling $36,440 between July and September for contract work done illegally and incorrectly on her home. 

In June, Rolon gave the woman a business card for “A Servant’s Hand” which said he was licensed to do multiple contracting services, including electrical, roofing, plumbing and flooring. Police say the woman, who has mobility, hearing and visual impairments, was looking to make flooring and roofing repairs before selling her Haines City home.
