I use Skype out to call a lot. One place I call, their caller ID usually shows a number like 000-123456 and "Unknown Caller". But sometimes, it shows the same number and a name "Greg Gautier".

This isn't really a problem but it is kind of curious. Has anyone else seen this? Has anyone an explanation?

If this is happening only on one specific number, my suspicion is a corrupt number identifier file, in the database. If it's on several numbers I would contact Skype as it is a larger issue than one identifier file.
