Strange Call Signs

I'm new to WSPR and have been playing around on some of the bands. I was reviewing my decodes from 80m last night and came up with the following:
2012-06-26 03:30 V12XMS 3.594019 -16 1 KC93 +60 1000.000 KK4XO EL96uf 13949 8668
The Call Sign V12XMS is not a valid Ham Radio call that I am aware of and the Grid Square is just off the coast of Antartica due south from South Africa. Can anyone explain this "phantom" decode? Seems like I would occasionally get similar decodes on JT65-HF mode from time to time.
Thanks - Bill, KK4XO
