I completely agree with Jim: I have no idea why alert thresholds are
set to a level of sensitivity which would cause this to become a "must
be dealt with this minute" sort of issue.  What exactly is the threat
potential of someone else's IP space being announced with your ASN
prepended?  

The threat that it is the first prefix like that and maybe not the last.
It could be an accidental (or intentional) mistake, and should be
tracked down ASAP to make sure that is the only such prefix.
