Ruskin Man, Jeffrey Perry Pleads Guilty to Wire Fraud

United States Attorney Maria Chapa Lopez announces that Jeffrey Perry (56, Ruskin) has pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud. Perry faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.

According to the plea agreement, Perry was involved in promoting and seeking investors in Life Link Travel, Inc. Perry indicated to investors that Life Link was going to open an online travel club portal and website. He often appealed to investors’ religious beliefs, telling them that their profits from Life Link would allow them to donate to worthy religious charities.

Between 2009 and 2014, Perry promoted this investment opportunity to various investors. Most of the funds came through wire transfers from investors outside of Florida, into Perry’s bank accounts in Florida. The Life Link website and portal never commenced operation.

Investors were unaware that the large majority of funds that Perry had persuaded them to “invest” in Life Link actually funded Perry’s gambling and other personal expenses.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jay L. Hoffer.
