Austintown police seek victims of investment theft

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Austintown police are trying to find out if there are more people who fell victim to a Boardman investment broker charged with stealing money from a client.

David Perham is charged with grand theft and complicity to commit forgery. Austintown Township Police Detective Sgt. Jordan Yacovone tells 21 News that Perham deposited a $12,831 check into his personal bank account instead of investing it for a client.

Yacovone says the money was given to Perham by his client with the intent that it would be invested on behalf of the client. "She kept asking for statements but never received any statements. When she looked into it with the company that it was supposed to be invested in she realized there was never any money invested in her name" said Yacovone.

Police say two other clients have come forward.

Police are asking anyone who has used the services of David Perham, or any of his business associates for tax or investment purposes to check their investments through the actual investment company to verify that it is legitimate.

Detective Yacovone would like anyone who believes they are a victim of theft to contact him at 330-270-5109 or e-mail him at yac5@austintowntwp.com.

Detective Yacovone says Peram was expected to surrender to authorities on Monday.
