Deletion of Fake Name Page

I am not able to delete a fake name page - https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4781285/

I checked the profile and verified that this is completely fake profile.

Requesting to delete this profile ASAP as he is adding fake credits to many movies in which he is not at all there.

Everything on this page (credits, bio info etc.) currently is definitely fake, however seeing that lower nconst number made me suspect there is a name page hijack here.

So, I checked an archived snapshot of the page: https://web.archive.org/web/20170215173352/http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4781285/

There is one animator credit on that 2017 snapshot of the page which does not exist on the name page right now. I checked that movie's end credits and that animator credit is correct.

So, this faker hijacked the page, deleted the only valid credit, and then filled it with his fake credits and bio info.

Hi @arpitgyo -

Thanks for reporting this. @mbmb as always thanks for the investigation, I have reinstated the page to how it was and took extra steps so it's not changed back.

Cheers!
