Reporting a fake profile

So, I was looking at a few portuguese soap operas on IMDB and came across a profile I never heard of before. I've seen those titles multiple times, and never seen such actor before. I'm guessing this person has made a profile to get famous or something, by using a pro account.

This is the profile, plus a new one has surfaced, after I deleted the fake credits more than once:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm9172430/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4158426/?ref_=fn_al_nm_2

I hope this gets correted.

  Hi RichieM,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I have reviewed the credits on http://www.imdb.com/name/nm9172430/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 and have been unable to find any evidence of the credits. As such I have removed this page.

However I believe the credits on http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4158426/?ref_=fn_al_nm_2 to be correct and so this page will remain on the site.

Thanks
Meredith

So, it looks like the photos from the deleted profile now have been uploded to the other one:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4158426/?ref_=nv_sr_1

Again, probably via his pro account. Let's hope the fake credits do not return though...

Hi RichieM -

Thanks for pointing out the recent addition of the image, rest assured that our staff have taken additional steps to help prevent the same fake credits from being re-listed.  Thanks again and have a good weekend!
