Due to VPN users from all over the world using a VPN and sometimes sharing location data what is shown can be different from what the VPN company knows. Since VPN companies don't always openly share their IP addresses and actual server location it gets wonky.

I have the same problem sometimes. The worst part is that after disconnecting VPN I'm still connected for another 15 minutes. I cannot do nothing about that. according to your issue just try to restart your VPN that should help. p.s What kind of VPN are you using?
