Someone has created my IMDB page without asking me, how can I delete it?

Someone has created without my permission my IMDB page. His name is Guillaume MOREAU and he has already done that with many other french women.

He pretends himself to be producer and head of actor agency but all he pretends is false.

Now, I appear on the Google results with this false page on which I don't want to appear. He used a photo stolen on my Facebook profile, and he talks about a project I wrote and for which he didn't have any rights on. I don't want my project to be on IMDB. I protected it sending myself a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt I never opened so I can prove that it's my project.

For now, this man blocked me on every networks and refuses to delete my page (same probleme for every women for who he created IMDB profile), and I don't know how to suppress it as I do not have any access on it.

Help me please :(

(sorry, my english's bad)

But you are Joanna Duaval, not Guillaume Moreau.
Why do you think that you should have a page about Guillaume.

None of the pages on the IMDb are "owned" by the person named on them, they are all owned by the IMDb. They are just pages About the person named on them. Anyone can submit data to be added to any of them

Sorry, it was not clear. Guillaume Moreau has created my IMDB profile (Joanna Lavaud, this is my real name). 

Ok, but can you ask to delete the page about you ?

The Joanna Lavaud page has no credits but does have a picture which probably means it was created by being claimed through an IMDbPro subscription - as far as I know that is the only way to add an image to a name page. This will require investigation by staff I think.

IMDb does not delete pages created from credits on eligible titles but that page has no credits so a different policy will apply here and I am not sure what that is.

Well the page about Guillaume Moreau has a photo on it and he looks decidely male. If that isn't you, then could it be someone else with the same name? You can always create a page about Guillaume Moreau (II).

There's no indication of relative importance in the Roman numerals, they are purely to indicate the order in which they were submitted.

Steve, please read carefully what Joanna writes: she said her page as Joanna Lavaud was created BY Guillaume Moreau, whiteout her being aware of it, and with no credit to assess she is eligible to.

yes Vincent, I read it, however, understanding it all is a different matter  :)

I'm aware that Joanna said that Guillaume  "took over" her page but was that for the filmography or the biography as well? And has she considered that there could be two (or more) people called Guillaume Moreau?

Joanna said that Guillaume created a page for her - http://www.imdb.com/name/nm8061269/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 if my reading of her reply is correct. That page has no credits but it does have a picture which suggests it was created through an IMDbPro account, not from a credit on some title. I think it needs investigation by IMDb staff to find out how that page was created and if it is claimed by an IMDbPro account, whose account that is and why the account owner has the right to create and claim that page.

I am not sure exactly what the policy is about an IMDbPro subscriber creating and claiming a page for someone else, especially if that person objects.

But anyone can create any name page for anyone, they don't have to be that person.
It's a bit different if (IF) they have created the page via IMDb Pro and they claim that page for themselves

The trouble here seems to be that Joanna seems (to my reading of this ticket so far) to be saying that it was Guillaume Moreau who created the page. How can she know who created it?

I have the same problem. He claims to be a director but it's a hustler and we understood the lie too late. he was talking to us at the beginning but as soon as we wanted to delete the pages he had created without our consent, he blocked us. It's very easy to create a page for a person here.

Hi Joanna -

I just reviewed the page you reported, as there are no active filmography credits and the page has not been claimed by a Resume account, the page is eligible for removal.  I have now removed the page listing from the site.  Cheers!
