A 64-year-old Campbell County is out $150,000 from scams involving transactions that masqueraded as federal debt relief programs.

He told Campbell County Sheriff's deputies on Monday that the suspects sent bad checks for him to deposit and asked for the cash to be sent to different locations throughout the country, as a tax payment on the relief payouts.
