Last week, it was the con artist posing as an inspector from the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs who made D.C. residents wary of authority figures. Today, a tipster sent DCist a picture of a bright orange notice from the “Department of Land Regulation Administration,” with the address blacked out. Sketchy, right? Turns out it’s not a fake notice after all—just an innocent misprint. “You make spelling mistakes sometimes, right?” DCRA spokesman Mike Rupert reasoned with Housing Complex. All the faulty notices have been pulled, all the agency’s other stickers and notices have been checked, and we’re sure it won’t happen again.
