Random Name on My IMDb Credits. Got Rid of it Once, But Now it's Back

A couple years ago, a random name appeared on some of my IMDb credits. I have no idea who it is, and I had never heard of the name, but it was appearing as "director, editor, writer, producer" on a few of my projects. After reporting this to IMDb, they had me send in screen shots of the credits, and they removed the random name. 

Suddenly, last week, the random name is back. Very frustrating as my IMDb page is already a crowded mess because of a couple name changes (a divorce, and for awhile I only went by my last name). I definitely do not need another mystery name added to my already-too-many-names.

It's just very weird because this name was removed in the past.

I reported it again, and received an email saying that the best way to fix it is to post my issue on the message board, so here I am, doing that. (It took a couple tries for them to grasp what I was talking about.) 

The random name that appears on my credits is "Veda Lane". That is not me, and I have no idea who that is. You can see screen shots of my films' credits with my actual name, "Pope". 

The reference number for my attempt to update it today is 190515-215800-415000.

Hi Tori -

Thanks for posting the screen grabs and clarifying the issue, these credit attributes have now been adjusted to the correct name, "Pope".  The changes should be live on the site shortly.
