IMDB are loath to delete credits, as the underlying assumption is that someone did what the credit is for, even if that someone isn't you. So they'd prefer to switch these out to the right person, with deleting a credit being a fallback option to remove fake data.

So, the usual cause of this is someone of a similar name being the ultimate recipient of these credits - if you can look around and find a likely candidate, you can edit the title's and add their name (with Roman numerals) instead of yours. As a last resort you can split them off to a new page, but you should be careful about that because there is nothing to stop someone merging them back into your page - it always helps to make it clear you are two different people, but if you don't know who it is and split it off, you can't do this. So a little bit of homework is always a good idea. If you can find one of the titles and there is no such credit on it, then it is a good case for deletion.

IMDB will never remove an entry - correct or incorrect - and no matter what is presented to them even if its been attempted to be corrected by a film producer or not the listing will persist. IMDB is absolutely without shame, and typical of a corporate enterprise. They have no care for people who are identified in any listing whether it is correctly or incorrectly done, and no matter of effort toward a correction will ever result in the change actually occurring.

Not true - we've got this fixed hundreds of times on here. If you have a problem with this then start a new thread.
