Dear Lucy. 

Firstly there is no indication that this person's real name is Asim Ahmad on IMDb itself. If you can confirm that his credits are false by re-checking the end credits of all of those movies it might be greatly appreciated. I suspect, though, that mix-up has occured and you're talking about this Asim Ahmad.  

If you indeed have a proof of some illegal activities on his part, please share them with authorities.

I'm afraid he has created a new account, changing his surname slightly. He has not done any of these movies.

Thank you so much Will! He uses this account to con people out of their money. I was a fool for going out with him, so I personally know what he is like. He promised to take me on certain movie sets, but they never materialised.

Regards
Lucy

He seriously needs to be stopped. Who knows who he is conning or stealing money from now by using these fake accounts. I'm also one he has conned, haven't dealt with him since 2013 and my entertainment lawyer actually had to get involved to stop him from harassing me.

There is an erroneous account http://www.imdb.com/name/nm9545596/ that was created as an attempt to humiliate the individuals listed as starring in the picture. There is no film "
Breaking: Twitter Engineers to 'Ban a Way of Talking' Through 'Shadow Banning' (2018)" The individuals listed are  Olinda Hassan ... Policy Manager, Twitter Trust & Safety;  Mo Noral ... Former Content Review Agent, Twitter; Abhinav Vadrevu ... Former Software Engineer, Twitter; Pranay Singh ... Direct Messaging Engineer, Twitter; Steven Pierre ... Software Engineer, Twitter;  Clay Haynes ... Himself (archive footage). Listing these individuals and their positions is perpetuating an trolling campaign.

I am particularly disappointed at how easy it is to repeatedly create fake profiles and add credits to multiple major movies without these updates being considered suspicious.

Hi, You'll float too, I would love to talk to you in more detail about Asim Ahmad. I worked for him for around 5 months (ending a month ago) and he has since vanished with my script and refused to pay me.

Obvious nothing is being done about banning his IP address from the website if he's able to constantly create page after page and con helpless victims by use of this fake pages. Only thing that's being done is removing his page from this site. There needs to be worse consequences for blatantly lying on this highly accredited website that many high profile industry professionals rely on and trust.

Hello there since you have made no attempt to remove the latest page I will assume that you are willingly allowing it to remain on this page despite being fully aware that it needs to be removed he is currently under a police and fraud investigation and since you are aiding him with conning people by having this page up you will be hearing from the police and solicitors unless it's removed in next 24 hours.

Jess, I noticed this was your first comment on this thread, and to come out of the gate so angrily and aggressively is surprising, to say the least. How do you know the good folks at IMDb weren't going through the "due diligence" steps and responsibilities? For all they knew, YOUR post/comment could be fraudulent, and threatening IMDb with the Police and lawyers is hardly a wise way to encourage someone to "put a rush on it". They can't just snap their fingers, Jess - and if you'd read the previous comments you'd know IMDb had taken this situation with this individual VERY seriously - so I hope you don't delude yourself into thinking your threats had anything to do with the subsequent results. I'll leave you with my Granny's favourite saying, Jess: "In Life, you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar"! Have a blessed day :)

Deb, I noticed this was your first comment on this thread, and to come out of the gate in such a judgemental fashion over something that doesn’t concern you is surprising, to say the least. How could you possibly understand how this man’s fraudulent actions have affected people’s lives and professional careers ? For all Jess knew, YOUR post/comment could be seen as bullying , and being demeaning and generally rude in a “passive aggressive” manner is hardly a wise way to encourage anyone to do anything. Clearly a frustrating situation , Deb- and if you'd read the previous comments you'd know that many people were affected - so I hope you don't delude yourself into thinking your passive aggressive post did anything but highlight to everyone what an unhappy, insecure individual you must be. I'll leave you with my Granny's favourite saying, Deb. “People are probably not HAPPY with their lives if they’re busy discussing yours” Have a blessed day :)

Meredith, can't IMDb have a way to flag these accounts, rather than having to make a post here about them? Fraudulent profiles are very common on this site, with YouTube video kids pretending they are professional actors and adding their names to legitimate films and TV shows.
