Reporting a hoax actor page

I'm reporting the profile for Joanna Grimes (nm5367716) as a fake profile. Someone has added it in order to falsify information for a person in an attempt to promote them on the Internet at large and this is one of a few places that they've tried to edit. The claims on the page are obviously fake and a quick search on the net disproves their claims. The only Joanna Grimes on the internet that is acting is a 30 year old Black woman. In other words, this page is just an attempt to perpetuate a hoax. The only places where this person has been mentioned have either been deleted as a hoax or are in the process of getting deleted.

This seems a slightly broader issue, which can't exactly be corrected through the page.

I'd suggest, you research their credits and post the evidence here demonstrating she isn't in them. The bar for deleting data is higher than for adding it, so you need to show there is a problem, as staff won't take your word for it.

I'd also recommend posting this in the Contributor's Help page on the main forum, as there are other folks there used to rooting out these problems - there are a few threads on there where people have laid out all the evidence and got the name entry (and credits) removed:

Even if you just do it here (and there shouldn't be any difference between here and there on this issue), you do have to present the evidence.

My sister has had a similar person with her two accounts on Twitter. She did a competition in July in which people could win a signed picture of her 'walker' self from The Walking Dead. I am assuming that this is the same person as she has the same name ie Joanna Grimes. Anyway, were now into November and my sister is STILL waiting, despite Joannas promises it still hasnt arrived. During this time one of her two Twitter accounts disappeared, I assumed removed, which coincedentally was the account in which the competition was done. Then after a few weeks another one appeared, with the same name & claims. She stated that she had to 'give away' her Twitter & Facebook accounts which was a very odd thing to do. Despite all of this noone else that entered her competition has confirmed that they recieved her 'signed picture' either. I deem this person to be a fraud, a shameful one indeed and she does not deserve the attention ♡Susan♡

I have a 'Joanna Grimes' on my twitter page who follows me and i follow her ...if its the same 'Joanna Grimes' who has accounts on IMDB and WIX then im afraid i think they're all fake profiles. The reason i say this is that im a fan of the 'Walking Dead' program and was delighted a so called 'walker' extra from the show decided to follow me so i returned the compliment by doing the same. Joanna Grimes or im lead to believe that is her so called name ran a competition where she was giving away a signed picture of her 'walker' self in the episodes she was in. To my delight i was one of the lucky few who won. This was back in July and im afraid to say im still waiting for it ??? No one else in the competition has either said whether or not they have recieved theirs ??
All her original accounts she followed me on are now however closed and she has reopened new ones which seems to be very odd indeed??? 
I can quite honestly say that i also deem this person A COMPLETED CHARLATAN and  A FRAUD

I figured that it had. Didnt see when the original report was posted so I wasnt sure. A person, using the same name has two FB profiles & two Twitter accounts and has clearly been fooling people into believing that shes real, I have reported it there as well. I remember her posting about her IMDB account as she thanked whoever it was for taking the picture - Surely she would have known who took the picture?? Haha Hopefully whoever it is will be outed on FB & Twitter.
