Wrong credit!!!

My IMDB page is displaying since yesterday (I think) a new credit which states that I was a cinematographer of a sitcom when I was sixteen.
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0779888/episodes?season=1&ref_=tt_eps_sn_1
At first I thought it might be a coincidence with someone with the same name as me but I've just confirmed it was a prank. Not a funny one. I'm looking for help to delete my name from this 26 credits. Please, anyone. Thanks in advance

To quote you exactly...........

"My IMDB page is displaying since yesterday (I think) a new credit which states that I was a cinematographer of a sitcom when I was sixteen."

According to your name page you were born in 1979! So which is true, and which is the lie?
That you were actually born 1985 or you actually did work on this title at age 22?

This is just too far fetched if you ask me. Your in Portugal. The Title in question was made in Portugal. Occam's Razor applies here.

It's a typically Portuguese name. It would be far-fetched indeed if I received any credits from Carlos Conceicao (II) the guy who did a lot of SFX for blockbusters like The Dark Knight etc. And, by the way, I lived in NY from 2000 to late 2002. I guess I should scan my passport as proof that I didn't skip for a couple of weekends to photograph this sitcom... ;)

Credits are correct:

Probably just someone with the same name as you like your first thought if you are really telling truth.

Why are you so concerned with this credit when you are unconcerned with the false data regarding your date of birth on your page?

Because age is unimportant and work is.

This is correct. There was a cameraman called Carlos Conceicao working on TV in Portugal for many years. He worked mainly for RTP and for NB Produções and was especially active on TV Contests and talk shows throughout the 90s. He has been retired for a number of years now. It was definitely not the same person.

Ed, you are sincerely paranoid and I don't wish to continue talking to you. This is a seriously surreal situation and please stop replying if you are not willing to help. Take good care.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled I get the credits of someone with the same name as me!.

Since April the 1st my IMDB page has displayed a credit that doesn't belong to me, although the actual person has the same name as I do (see picture).



These are the wrong credits:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0779888/episodes?season=1&ref_=tt_eps_sn_1

And this is my imdb page:
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0174228/

The only person who replied to my previous help request, seems more interested in making fun of me, suggesting that I might actually be trying to get rid of credits that don't make me proud. Since the conversation got stuck there and became borderline disrespectful, I'm posting again in hope that someone else might be available to go through this with me and help to correct this mistake. Thanks in advance!!

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for your post.

It looks as though this has been resolved, as all of the credits for Milionários à Força are showing on the page for Carlos Conceição (V) instead of Carlos Conceição (I).

Many thanks.

Jay

Thank you, Jay. All is explained. This was a surreal situation that left me traumatized. I wouldn't wish anyone being argued that they are someone they say they're not. And I think IMDB should make sure not just anyone gets to control or coordinate contents.
Thanks for your kind words.
