corrupted data

I'm curious to know that when / if corrupted data appears in spot reports, is it a result of the transmitter, the receiver, or just the signal traveling through space???

The reason I ask this is because I noticed quite a few spot reports from the 18th of May that showed my grid as being wrong on at least 5 different times on different spots.
And it also showed receiving stations being much farther away than they really are, and they tend to be north or northeast of my location.

For example, my grid is actually CMN95nh, but spot reports showed me in several different places on that date with different reporting stations. I noticed this because the
distances were all much farther than I usually average.

Any ideas of why that might be happening so much?

Thanks.
