False and inaccurate profile

Hello, 

I did a search on my name recently and one of the links that popped up on first page is an IMDB page showing ‘Alan DeRolph as an actor on “Vanished” and Terror Strike”.  There is no such person existing and someone maliciously made this post to impersonate me with my name instead misspelling Allen with Alan. 

I am requesting for this fake profile to be removed from this platform as it is false and fake. 

Thank you,

Allen DeRolph

Allen: Have you considered the possibility that it might be an error, rather than a malicious impersonation?

I would note that the page at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3751074/ does not say that Alan DeRolph is an actor. It says he is a boom operator in the Sound Department on the two films you mentioned.

Also, you have not indicated whether you yourself are supposed to be listed in the IMDb at all, and if so, what titles you have worked on and in what jobs.

Please state what information is supposed to be in IMDb regarding yourself. That will help us investigate the problem.

@gromit82​ From the short film 'Vanished' is this credit.

So that credit is right just the christian name is spelled different.

Both shorts are made by same Director but I've yet to find the other to check the spelling.

@VonPunk​ Thanks. I tried to look for those films, but I could not find them online.

I recommend that we wait for the OP to return and provide additional information before submitting any corrections.

@gromit82​ Glad to help. Yeah, old shorts can be very hard to find, I found 2 copies of 'Vanished', one is private on Vimeo but I managed to get round that on a portfolio page, the other on Youtube.

Found clips from 'Terror Strike' but not the full short with credits, so cannot provide more at this time.
