Turk Cazimero was arrested for conning people into investing $900,000 in concerts, including a “Vans Warped DJ Tour” and a rodeo that never happened using the name Hawaiian Hurricane Productions. He’s been ordered to repay everyone, according to KHON-TV

The indictment also accused Cazimero of conducting a Ponzi scheme by spending the money on personal expenses and to repay “investors” who had previously put up money for the fictitious events. 

He faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in April of this year, the station reported.
