UUNet goon

I'm wondering why someone at UUNet decided to start announcing a /24
(209.113.17.0) out of our ARIN assigned /17 (209.113.0.0).  

>whois 209.113.17.0@whois.arin.net
[whois.arin.net]
Insync Internet Services (NETBLK-INSYNC3)
   5555 San Felipe, Suite 700
   Houston, TX 77056
   US

   Netname: INSYNC3
   Netblock: 209.113.0.0 - 209.113.127.255
   Maintainer: SYNC

An example from Nitrous (MAE West):

And here's our /17 from MAE West (5003 is us):

BGP routing table entry for 209.113.0.0/17, version 102340
Paths: (14 available, best #13, advertised over IBGP)

    137.39.140.21 (metric 70) from 165.117.1.76
      Origin IGP, metric 4294967294, localpref 100, valid, internal,

It appears that one of our previous customers who was assigned that class
C by us decided to buy a T1 from UUNet and UUNet let them use our IP
space.  What kind of checks are usually done when peolpe come to the NSP's
with other people's address space?  A simple check at ARIN would have
shown that the entire /17 is our IP space.  What really chaps my ass is
we're a UUNet multi-meg customer and so far I'm fighting to have to get
them to stop blackholing my IP space.  I guess their guaranteed service
clause is going to come in handy this month.  I smell a free month of
service coming.
