There was an account already created under my name: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3885345/

I have subscribed to IMDb pro in order to get access to this page.
The name is misspelled it's Kostas Pitsillidis instead of Costas Pitsillides, and I have requested from IMDb to change it and it has not yet been approved.

Thank you for your reply Will. I am a little bit frustrated with how IMDb work because I already had a change request declined. My name is listed under 2 movies that I have not been involved with, another person (Kostakis Pitsillidis has) been a producer for these. I have requested from my name to be removed from this work but my request was declined, because it says I've not provided enough evidence.

What more evidence do I need to provide? I am unable to correct the spelling of my name and update the productions that I have involved with.

Thank you I have fixed that according to the guidelines now.
Are you able to help me with the name correction/ credits removal I am trying to do as well?

Costas Pitsillides is the correct. Currently it's Kostas Pitsillidis because that's how many people used to refer to it and so IMDb generated it like this.

You can only change the name on the pages main name. Each individual credit that deviates from this will remain as is.

Is this exactly how you filled out your name page correction?

Thanks for taking the time Ed. Yes that's how I requested it (only thing different is the surname, it should be Pitsillides with an "e" at the end) and it has been pending for more than 6 days now. 
This should be something easy for IMDb to pick out as my name is listed correctly on most productions I've been given credit for.

Then it should look like this.
And as a note: This will ONLY change the Name on the header of your page.
It should update and remove those "as" credits automatically.
I hope you were not making submissions for all the individual credits. That won't work.
It must be done just like you see below.

Processing time as of today is 10 days. They are behind 1,693 name correction requests. They are working on submissions from Oct 5 today. So 10 days from now.
Be patient.
