Housekeeper Takes Financial Advantage of Elderly Man

Anisa Llega, 24, began working for 84-year-old Donald Hodgins as a house cleaner after the two met at a restaurant where she was working. The Arlington, Massachusetts woman then formed a friendship with the man.

Hodgins said, “I thought she was a poor girl trying to earn a little money here and there working for me."

Llega then started telling Hodgins that her mother had health issues and she needed to have a brain tumor removed. Hodgins went on to say “She would say her mother was sick and needed $500 in medicine. I would give her a check for $500 thinking I was helping her out." The surgery needed for a brain tumor alleged costs $30,000.

In addition, Hodgins gave Llega money for school loans, car payments and other miscellaneous items.

Overall, Arlington Police believe she exploited over $100,000 from Hodgins within the course of three months. Several of Llega's bank accounts were eventually found and frozen by authorities. Llega is now facing charges of larceny over $250 by a single scheme.
