Hello Marco,
They usually are deleted, but not instantly. When was it first noticed / reporte?

Hi Steve,
As you can see here (https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/faking-credits-in-visual-effects), Michelle deleted the credits two weeks ago.

Hi, Marco. The profile would only be removed altogether if the associated IMDbPro subscription was cancelled, suspended or terminated, and the IMDb site authorities usually will not force that to happen unless the subscriber has exhibited a pervasive pattern of fraud or other abusive behaviors.

Yes indeed they do check.
The difference for you Nikolay, is a trail shorts that anyone can find on You Tube!
Curious though. You have never credited yourself as Transportation Captain. Since you transport yourself around to all your shooting locations!!! Oh and do not forget catering, since you cater all meals on the set of most of your productions. Do they have Burger Kings there where you are?
You can never take enough credit for what you have done.
Cheers!!!

Indeed, I almost never credit myself for transportation because, well... I suck at transportation, perhaps even more then I suck at many things I'm crediting myself with. I do credit a few guys for transportation, mostly, on several of my projects. One of them helped me to relocate some of the stuff without which normal production of several projects would have been impossible, while others just help in that area, from time to time. I do have a driver's license, but my driving was atrocious and if I'll ever go behind the wheel, needs serious additional education. 

As for catering: addition of credits for such is usually seen as weird on short films and other such low budget efforts, but it's my way to acknowledge that catering is important, especially on no budget: if you can't pay the actors, you should at least feed them and makes sure there's something for everyone. :)

You saw those Pictures from the race track on another topic. Plus the suggestion for characters that barely talk. I have race car short track experience and I could easily do stunt car driving. Need Lessons? Could teach you how to be a cab driver in Paris easily! Just hit everybody else before they hit you! Easy. Lesson Over!

It is in my bucket list to do a bit of stunt driving one day, really. I've already did some simple stunts of other kinds by necessity. :)

I suspect that sometimes on no budget having an inexperienced driver might actually produce some very interesting car stunts. The problem is that safety regulations go out of window, of course... And if there's anything that should not be trimmed off the budget it's safety. Well, and catering. :)

Hi Marco,

Thanks for asking. We have retained the name page but taken further internal action, however this may not be obvious when viewing the page publicly.

Regards,
Will

It's good to know internal action has been taken, although it still seems very weird to me to grand this person his own page. Well, agree to disagree I guess.
