Well, the first thing to do would be to check ARIN's whois, to see if the 
data is correct there.  "whois -h n.n.n.n"

If it's correct there, then someone else has corrupted it subsequently.  
If it's incorrect in the ARIN whois, then it's incorrect in the ARIN 
database, and you need to speak with ARIN staff to get that corrected.
