I think I found somebody adding fake credits here and on Wikipedia.

I am a Wikipedia editor and I stumbled upon a weird credit for the recent Ju-on Netflix show. Two different IPs added the name "Xerxes Pordely" to the writing credits on the Japanese article. I found that strange because 1) it was very poor Japanese in both cases, clearly not written by a native, and 2) I checked and couldn't find that name anywhere in the actual credits.

I found a few other instances of that name on the English side of Wikipedia and here, on IMDb, and it all seems fishy to me, so I thought I would let you know.

Oliver. I agree. But you have done the research. You must make the deletion of the credits. IMDb will approve or deny the removal of the fake credits depending on the data you provide as proof.
Please read this topic Correcting or deleting existing data it explains how.
