Non factual uncredited jobs on my IMDb page - Please delete.

Hello again,

On this page: https://m.imdb.com/title/tt6238622/?ref=m_nv_sr_1, for which ALL cast and crew are listed as uncredited, I've been listed as actor, casting director and line producer. I am indeed an actor on this production (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tb6_eWjrMZc), but I was neither the casting director nor the line producer.

I am the one who has submitted these titles in the first place. However, it was a gross mistake on my part. I didn't do those jobs.

I would like to point out that IMDb has repeatedly said that they believe the information to be factual, based solely on my own submissions (since there is nothing else to prove it), which I now recuse myself from.

I understand that my trust rating would come down a notch, as deleting those entries would mean that my own submissions were not accurate. I accept the consequences and will be more careful in the future.

Thank you

Mehdi: In addition to Michelle's advice above, I think you would be best off submitting corrections to indicate who were the casting director and the line producer if not yourself. After all, those people did their work on the commercial and deserve credit for it.
Also, there were four other actors in the commercial besides yourself, and you would boost your own accuracy by adding them to the cast as well.

I tried. They won't accept it. The line producer is actually Hamza Atifi (also listed as cinematographer) and I submitted an invoice (in French) proving he was in charge.

As for the casting director... the one who did it (not me) does not wish to be listed on IMDb. I can't force it upon them.

Hi Will.

I promise I will do my very best to try to understand, if you can tell me why do you believe the data to be actually factual.

I would be grateful for a comprehensive answer to this matter.
