More than $80,000 dollars in investments made to a man in Springfield turned out to be nothing more than a scam.
Secretary of State Robin Carnahan's office says Christopher Hanson told people they were investing in a program backed by the United States treasury and there was very little risk.
Those investors haven't received any returns so far.
Hanson will face more than $70,000 dollars in penalties and could have to pay even more to investors.
Carnahan reminds folks that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
