(The following article was taken from The Burlington Free Press, Sunday, July 2, 1995. It was sent to me by IECA member Ben Mason, commenting that it is important for all of us to keep in touch to keep at bay fly-by-nighters.

WAITSFIELD -- A Waitsfield man who ran a program for troubled teen-agers has agreed to pay $90,000 to settle a consumer fraud lawsuit brought against him by the Vermont Attorney General's Office. 
Michael Casper was accused of stating in a brochure for his Miracles for Teen-agers program to have a doctorate from a medical school in the Far East his only post-high-school degree is Doctor of Acupuncture from a school in Hong Kong. 
Attorney General Jeffrey Armestoy said Casper said he was a certified drug and alcohol counselor, but was only an apprentice. The Attorney General's Office sued after Casper's business filed for bankruptcy. Under the terms of the agreement, Casper must pay $50,000 to the state in civil penalties and almost $40,000 in reimbursements to five out-of-state families who placed teens in the program.
