Welcome to benchmarking. As I've said, most tend to stumble upon a mark as they look for a cache, when the log the cache, they hit the nearest benchmark link, find what's closest and then submit their find report.
There is BM near Waukesha that keeps getting logged found (As its right near a cache). The problem is that people are finding the azimuth mark, not the station. I've posted notes on the BM page to no avail.
As you really get into the recovery, you'll find this more and more frequently. You'll also know which names to trust and which ones you just roll your eyes at (most of them sadly), then take a deep breath and move on.
It's kind of sad really. I was talking to a surveyor, who told me he saw one of our recovery reports on GC.com. He was thrilled as he had a known, usable station for a surveying project he was doing in the area. So there are professionals out there who do look at the reports on GC.com. Repeated bogus recoveries don't do any of us any favors.
