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.

    Disputes

    Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any IMDb Service, or any products or services sold or distributed by IMDb or through the IMDb Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

    a. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

    b. To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent Corporation Service Company, 300 Deschutes Way SW, Suite 304, Tumwater, WA 98051. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA’s rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, IMDb will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

    c. You and IMDb each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration you and IMDb each waive any right to a jury trial. You and IMDb also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

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!

Cam. Using two accounts is silly and will likely get you banned.
Sockpuppets are not cool.

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
