my sample code is:
/* gets the data from a URL */
function get_data($url) {
	$ch = curl_init();
	$timeout = 5;
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
	curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, $timeout);
	$data = curl_exec($ch);
	curl_close($ch);
	return $data;
}

$returned_content = get_data('http://www.google.com');

echo $returned_content;

That means you have a 'character set mismatch' where the character set of the web site you're getting that from is not the same as your own web site or possibly the PHP/curl code.

One example: http://php.net/manual/en/function.curl-setopt.php

Check that web site and your own to see what character set encodings they are using.
