Fake profile

This person https://m.imdb.com/name/nm10222948/?r... Creates fake profiles for movies that don’t exist and lists herself as screenwriter and director. She even links actors to them. Her real name is HL Roberts and she’s an author and she uses the fake IMDb page to scam people into signing with her “publishing company”. She’s a major liar and this is the third IMDb she’s created. Is it that easy to make a fake profile? How are we supposed to accept anything as valid if it’s so easy to fake?

Yes it’s the same person. She’s done this before with the same movies listing herself as director and she got called out on Twitter and took it down. Now it’s back up. The one that says she’s an author is real. The other one is the one she uses to scam people by saying she’s a director and screenwriter.

I agree. She has created so many fake accounts it is hard to keep track of them all, and I do have people working on proving this. This has to stop. She should not be able to just make fake profiles and call herself a screenwriter.

This is a total fake profile. She hasn’t written any screen plays. She’s written a book or two, but nothing that would fit her to have an IMDb profile. This is fake!

Thanks.  I know how to read the "5 months ago" part the posts.  But I appreciate you insinuating I am that clueless.

And obviously that title has not been removed because I had just listed a link to it so your response is pretty funny.  But you are doing a great job of keeping your Post count nice and high.  :D

Not upset like you are obviously, but I have to ask then. Why did you post it in the first place?
Thanks
