How about N5WSU? Maybe he had a typo in the callsign field in his software?
In fact, it may be common--there's a Facebook entry from 2015 that lists both callsigns:
From: Jerry N9AVY <n9avy@...>
To: email@example.com <firstname.lastname@example.org>

The other day I worked N5SWU who said his name was Martin. Unfortunately, the FCC database has no record and the original call sign belonged to a YL which expired in 2011. Guess some wannabe ham was bootlegging the call sign. Sad.
