Is WAMB Group Scamming Radio Stations?

A source has told ALL ACCESS that dozens of radio stations around the country have been involved with a company named "WAMB GROUP," owned and run by DAVID ALTSHULER in "an apparent travel scam." Numerous "winners" have tried to collect their prize, only to find the freebie involved "a $50 fee." More recently, the phone numbers they were told to call, have been shut down or gone unanswered.
CLEAR CHANNEL/AUGUSTA was just one of the groups involved, offering a "3 Days BAHAMAS CELEBRATION CRUISE & 2 Nights in FT. LAUDERDALE or ORLANDO With Airfare $2098 Value!" on their online auction page of their website.
The WAMB GROUP traded CARIBBEAN cruises and LAS VEGAS holidays on numerous radio stations in exchange for barter ads voiced by "CARMEN ELEKTRA." Their business address, 1835 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd #293 HALLENDALE, Fl 33009, is simply a post office box in a MAIL BOXES ETC. store in HALLANDALE.
Our source came forward because he was afraid many radio stations haven't realized they were taken advantage of, and that the trips don't exist for potential "winners."
