False results USA

Hello - We are using your mapquest geocoding API for our software. We enter the zip code to find a city/state/country. We are seeing incorrect results when entering USA zip codes. They are returning results for cities in South America, Europe etc. One example is 05672. Stowe, Vermont, USA. It is returning results for Sao Paolo Brazil. This is just one example. It is happening to many US based postal codes.

Here is the URL as a test:

I'm getting the same lat/Long

I'm getting the same lat/Long code for anything in the USA.  It seems it just wants to tell me where the middle of the country is and not my actual address.  If I run it through the "try it" portion, it seems to work.  The response does not seem to even tell me the City, State, Country, etc... tag information, but it does tell me what address I had searched for.  Thoughts?
