Someone keeps using my account to add credits for people and films I've never worked with or heard of. It's happened numerous times now.

Here is an example:
Peñúñuri, Gabriela
Other Crew member Credits - Add
Title: I Live for You (2013)
Occupation: production assistant

Siren (2013/II)
Other Crew - Replace
Old -
Name: Wu, Kevin (II)
Occupation: production assistant
New -
Name: Wu, Kevin (V)
Occupation: production assistant


But there have been a bunch of these in the past 3 months...

If you are getting the emails for changes and the submissions show up in your Update History, then somebody is using your account to submit these items.

Is there anyone else who has access to your computer, or did you use a public computer and forget to log off IMDb?

You should immediately change your IMDb password, then log out and back in using the new password.

Hover over your User ID at the top right of almost any IMDb page. Click on Your Account. Change your password is the second option in the left column.

This has come up once before - staff can look into it, but I seem to recall that there is a logical explanation.
