From New Scientist #1316, 29th July 1982 [link]
In the above addition sum all the digits are wrong. But the same wrong digit stands for the same correct digit wherever it appears, and the same correct digit is always represented by the same wrong digit.
There is no actual question asked by this puzzle, but I think we can safely assume that the answer is the sum written out using the correct digits.
This puzzle had been previously published in New Scientist #1137 (11th January 1979) as Puzzle 85.
