HELP: Incorrect information on my profile

There is an incorrect credit on my profile. I opened a GetSatisfaction ticket about the problem and was told I would need to provide the original credits in order for the credit to be deleted. I thought the credits would be impossible to find for a 14 year old awards show, so I tried to go about proving the credit false in other ways, and eventually IMDb closed the ticket.

I then was -- shockingly -- able to find the credits on YouTube. I provided screenshots and a link to the credits as requested, but because the ticket was already closed, no one from IMDb is responding.

I tried submitting another standard edit through IMDb, and it was rejected for "unable to verify." I tried contacting IMDb through the Help page as directed, and I have not gotten responses. (I have tried this more than once, and am told I should hear back "within 24 hours." It has been much longer than 24 hours, and no response.)

For reference, the false credit is VH1 Big in '05, as shown on my IMDb profile here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2069640/ My college roommates thought it was funny to submit fake credits for me when I was out of the room, and this is the one that somehow got through. It has haunted me for years.

The credits can be found in full on this YouTube video starting at the 6 minute mark. The video is of the VH1 Big in 05 show's final performance, and the credits follow the performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdSiv4hUENY

There are multiple different types of production assistants credited, and I have included screenshots of all of them below demonstrating that I am nowhere to be found.

The credit is 100% fake, and frankly if IMDb is serious about its mission of being the most accurate database on the internet, it should never have been approved in the first place.

If desired, feel free to comb through the entirety of the credits on the YouTube video for definitive proof my name is 100% absent.

Thank you for taking care of this immediately for me.
