Re: Removing my full name from IMDB

IMDB have used my full name, which I've never been credited for as nobody calls me by my full name, without my permission and refuse to remove it claiming it's unverified but I am the person that the profile belongs to. How can I remove my full name? Can you help please? Do I need to escalate this further?

IMDB have put my full name on my profile without my permission and I don't want up there. I explain it to them and they refuse to remove it saying it's unverified. I don't want my full name there as nobody calls me by that name and I'm not credited under that name. Can somebody please help me remove it? Can I escalate the case further? Thank you

How is the name listed? As your birth name or in connection with a credit?

@Peter_pbn you know when you open the biography and it has alternative names? In that section

If the name is associated with any of your credits with an "as" attribute, and if you were not actually credited on screen with that name, then you should try to correct the credit.

If the name is listed as an alternate name but not associated with any credit, IMDb staff can possibly just remove it if you post the link to the page.

And if you were in fact credited on screen with the full name, you can request to hide it as described here:

@Peter_pbn Unfortunately I think I was listed as "uncredited" without my permission on at least one of the projects on my filmography. Is that the reason why they refuse to take it off? But I didn't give permission for it.

I'm not sure what you mean. Being listed as uncredited doesn't cause your full name to be listed.

I don't know what you are submitting, so I have no way of knowing why it is not approved.

If the full name is listed next to a specific credit, then you can try to get a screenshot from the credits to show how you were actually credited.
