According to NewsDay.com, "Federal authorities are investigating a central New York magician's claim that he successfully shipped himself in a crate to Las Vegas via the United Parcel Service. A spokesman for UPS says the company believes Wade Whitcomb's claim is a hoax. The Transportation Security Administration and the FBI are investigating Whitcomb's claim." Magician Wade Whitcomb staged the stunt to help promote the launch of VentMa.com. The custom designed crate contained four cameras which were used to record the stunt, videos of which can be seen on the site.
