I have recently been doing some scans and in some cases nmap returns many
ports to be open. the weird thing is that the ports are sequential.
i know many of you might be tempted to say its a honeypot but i know for a
fact its not. does anyone know why does this happen and how? 

You didn't specify whether these are TCP or UDP.

If it is UDP, then firewalled ports could appear open to a port scanner,
which might explain what you are seeing.
