I've recently been invited to work for an Upwork Agency. They are asking me to submit my scanned CNIC (identity verification document) along with a written request to join the agency. According to them, this is mandatory before being allowed to work on any projects. I want to make sure if it's safe to share my personal documents this way? Are personal documents including identity vertification required to work for an Upwork Agency?
