To put it simply, because it is not a valid address. If you run "validateaddress XuGQGK8qwSKWgnEp73sjUK1FHp4WMK7syj" via dash-cli (or the Dash Core console) to check the address, it returns invalid. You can also see that if you search for the address here - https://explorer.dash.org/address/XuGQGK8qwSKWgnEp73sjUK1FHp4WMK7syj.

Perhaps the user manually typed the address in and got it incorrect?
