NILES, Ill., May 17 (UPI) -- Police in Illinois say a man reported someone posing as a doctor used toothpicks for acupuncture and gave him expired medication.

Niles police said the man responded to an ad in a Bulgarian-language newspaper April 23 and met with the man claiming to be a doctor at a closed medical clinic, Chicago Sun-Times Media reported Tuesday.

The victim told police the man used toothpicks to give him acupuncture on his chest and gave him pills labeled "Prosperous Farmer Dietary Supplements," which had expired in February 2002.

The man paid $200 for the appointment, police said.

Police said the man returned to the clinic April 30 and saw the suspect flee the building.
