Hijacked profile

I need help. I've had a professional profile since 2009 . I put a lot of hard work into it . A couple of years ago a model with the same name Teresa Moore hijacked my page and even some of my credits. How is this allowed and isn't this kind of illegal?  Before when anyone searched my name my photo and credits of which I have many came up no problem. Now it doesn't even exist. All that comes up is one film .  How is this allowed ?  I have lost many opportunity due to this. There's no one available to help so I'm posting here. How can I resurrect my own account?  I don't even know where to start and people shouldn't be allowed to take over someone's hard earned profile. Please advise. Thank you

Are these credits yours now? https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10028254/

I can see there was definitely a takeover on this nm2467194 name page, on this snapshot from 2010 and 2011, there are only credits that is moved to nm10028254 now (which I assume yours) and none for the model that occupies the nm2467194 now.

So, nm2467194 was yours first, but that model came and claimed your page, and then moved your credits to nm10028254, is that correct? Are there any other name pages with your credits? Or are there any credits which was not moved to nm10028254 but deleted instead?

@TeresaMoore123​ I think you say yes to question of if credits on this name page are yours? https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10028254/

Are there any other name pages with your credits? Or are there any credits which was not moved to nm10028254 but deleted instead?

Usually ”hijacking” basically means that someone is just adding new credits to a wrong name page. So wrong credits should be moved to another page (roman numeral ”II”). That is usually the easiest way.

Things can be more complicated if the page is actually ”claimed”, with photos etc added via IMDbPro.

Thank you. Are you saying I need to make another page and profile ? With Teresa Moore II?

If you know all the films that doesn’t belong to your name page, you can go to the IMDb title page of each of these productions, click ”edit”, choose actors and ”correct”, and correct the the name ”Moore, Teresa (I)” to ”Moore, Teresa (II)” (for example, I’m not sure about the exact pages and exact roman numerals). Also remember to tick the explanation box and explain why you’re correcting the name.

@eboy​ I think most or all of her credits are already moved to a different page (nm10028254) as she confirmed above. The thing here is the hijacking-takeover of the original page by someone else.
