Why does IMDB make it so hard to report fake accounts?

https://www.imdb.com/user/ur93900515/?ref_=tt_urv

This account has one "1" rating for a Kray movie, and another with "10" for his own Kray movie.

Seems pretty obvious what is going on here.

But IMDB doesn't seem to care about this problem, so I won't expect anything to change.

Well, it really doesn't seem like it. I don't see how that helps this problem.

I just don't understand why no one at IMDB seems to care about this issue. It happens all the time and it's so obvious what is going on, but no one can be bothered to do anything about it.

It's almost like you want the site to be full of fake accounts and spam. To boost the stats? That's the only thing that makes sense to me.

You did not read the link.
1 votes and 10 votes are throwaway votes.
IMDb literally makes them invisible.
So if you give something a 1 or 10 it really is not tabulated in the overall totals.

I did read the link. I don't care about the votes, that's not the point. This is obviously a fake account. Why even allow it to exist, let alone post reviews?

Also, how do I change this back to "unanswered", because it hasn't answered my question.
