(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A Rochester man will send five years in federal prison for his part in a multi-million dollar investment scam.

 
Jason Meyer, 35, was sentenced on Monday in Minneapolis district court.
 
The U.S. Attorney's Office says Meyer started 3 Hooligans Investment Properties in 2007, claiming he was a seasoned investor.  He promised clients significant returns on their investments, but instead deposited their money into a bank account.
 
Meyer bought cars, vacations and even bought a home with the funds.  
 
The U.S. Attorney’s Office wants to remind people to protect themselves from investment fraud. For more information, visit http://www.stopfraud.gov/protect-securities.html
