Stolen IMDB Identity

An IndieGoGo backer for my film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt11916416/?ref_=ext_shr_lnk has taken it upon himself to take control of updating our IDMB page (which I haven't had time to do due to my job), but has also seemingly been in contact with IMDB regarding my cast's individual pages. For example, he had IMDB merge my friend Adi's page with the page under his name he no longer uses professionally.

While I'm not sure anything he did undermines the film, I'm very creeped out that he's been doing this all. He sent a novel of an email detailing everything he's done and it was psychotic to read. And I'm not comfortable with this guy who may be totally insane having this much access to the film's page, my information, and my production team's. I've never met this guy, he's a random backer.

I couldn't find a support category to submit this to, so I wanted to try here. Let me know if you have any suggestions or helpful tips. I've never had a chance to learn to use IMDB in a professional sense, so I don't know if I'm blowing this guy's antics out of proportion.

I've gotta tell you this is not helpful. I'm not looking for one of my friends to get scolded for his IMDB, I'm asking about how to handle someone who seems very stalker-ish and get rid of his access to my films.

Hi qfluet -

In order to be as comprehensive and current as possible, we cannot restrict updates for a specific title to a single source or reject further changes. However, for your title,  if you submit complete cast/crew information for the film via the Update form (found by clicking the "<b>Edit Page</b>" button listed at the bottom of the title page), and our editors can verify that it matches the onscreen credits we can mark the listing as '<b>complete / verified</b>'. This helps prevent future accidental additions/changes.

In the meantime, if you're aware of any inaccurate  information on the title page, you should submit the applicable corrections/updates via the online Update form (which can be accessed by clicking "<b>Edit Page</b>" on the title page) and our editors will review the requested changes.

I hope this helps!
