It wasn’t the rolling hills or beautiful Watts Bar Lake that attracted Bracey Bahm to Roane County.
Hopes of a job brought him here from North Carolina. Unfortunately for Bahm, what looked like a good opportunity turned out to be a scam.
“I not only paid for my trip up here and my wife’s, but also the guy that actually scammed us,” he said.
Bahm is not the only victim. Authorities said more than two dozen people may have been duped by a man identified in Kingston police records as Rickey K. Hubbard.
