Trust your data annotation. When you look up one SNP in dnSNP you will see that your annotation matches GRCh37 while the Scan annotation does not match GRCh38.

Judging by data sources of information documented in the about SCAN link I am guessing that SNPs are mapped to an ever older version.

Probably different genome assemblies. Scandb uses dbSNP129 from 2008, so the assembly is probably hg18. Your coordinates are hg19. You can use liftOver to check if that is true.
