This is nuts.  I have sent multiple requests. i wasn't in this movie and nobody has reached out for verification.  It says I was in a movie called Raw Zombie II.  This is annoying.

Chris: If you are not the Chris Shepard who was in Raw Zombie 11, then rather than trying to delete the credit outright, you should submit a correction to the cast of that film to assign the credit to a different Chris Shepard. Most likely this should be a Chris Shepard with the next unused roman numeral, which in this case would be Chris Shepard (X). (See https://www.imdb.com/find?q=chris%20shepard&s=nm&exact=true.)

I have my doubts as to whether Raw Zombie 11 (1999) is eligible for listing in IMDb at all. There is no specific release date given, no distributor, no user reviews, no critics' reviews, no external links are provided to either an official site or to an independent site (although a miscellaneous link would not have been required for a pre-2000 film), and the film has not even received 5 votes. But unless we hear from the IMDb staff about that issue, I would recommend focusing on correcting the Cast list to give your credit to a new person to be known as Chris Shepard (X) instead of yourself, Chris Shepard (I).

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Didn't work.  This is ridiculous.

Removal/Re-assignment of a credit is almost impossible to prove. Since your name is in the credits and it is the same name, it absolutely almost cannot be verified. Why this advice keeps being given out by contributors is is beyond me. You needed to have been informed that unless you provide "Visual" proof the credit will remain.
So sorry you went through the attempt. You have to provide a screenshot of the other actor with the same name to have a credit transferred. In this case finding a viewable copy of the title will be difficult. This is what IMDb bases their decisions on. Verifiable proof that is beyond argument.
Sorry
Cheers :):)

Well, I suppose good luck proving that, eh?  Who could even find it?
Thanks anyway.  What a flawed website.

You'd be surprised what can be found on the internet. Try.

Grommit82 makes a case for title removal though. Lets see what happens there.
I have made a deletion request.

I ended up emailing them through a link here and they finally reassigned it to a new Chris Shepard.  Thanks for all of your help!
