Presumably they're double-natting.  I had to do that once for Y2K 
compliance for three large governmental networks that were all statically 
addressed in net-10 and wouldn't/couldn't renumber in time.  In fact, 
there were _specific hosts_ which had the same IP address, and _had to 
talk to each other_.  Gross.  But it can be done.
