Analytics Incorrectly Showing Trackbacks - Showing Results for Entirely Different Websites

We were looking at social trackbacks in our Google Analytics account, and noticed some odd websites showing up.

 

When looking at the February 2016 Trackbacks for our domain FonsAndPorter.com, Google Analytics believes that one of our other sites is linking to a page of ours – a subscription page from Palmcoast (example https://secure.palmcoastd.com/pcd/document?iUnique=A&iKey=07629IC46). However when you go to the subscription page, it's not even a subscription page for the brand of that GA profile. In fact, one of the data sets for endorsing url and your page isn't even one of our company websites at all, nor a company that we work with.

 

Does anyone know why this miss-recording is occurring. I can't seem to find information on it anywhere. Thanks!
