In my real life I am actually Jennifer Aniston. I took to freelancing after Brad left me.

Hi Rajen,

 

I see you already received good advice from other users, so I'll just point out that you should report freelancers who you suspect are using fake names and profile photos.

 

In addition to advice you received here, please visit our Hiring Headquarters to find all the information and best practice advice designed to help guide you through the hiring process on Upwork. Feel free to contact Customer Support if you need help with reviewing freelancers' proposals/profiles, and our specialized team will assist you.

why do you feel the need to know freelancer real name, though? who cares if he wants you to call him Justin, just look at his work history - the important stuff.

You think his work history isn't stolen? You must be new here.

Obviously never seen the outcome of work done by someone stealing portfolio items. Waste of time and frustrating for a client. You think that client will come back? Prolly not. Hurts every godo provider on the site, so I say burn them with fire Upwork.

Maksym: that is fine to do on other sites.

On Upwork, we use our real names as a means if fostering a professional work environment with accountability and transparency.

its not about about the name - if the person was genuine then it is fine.

but i have done some skype interviews with people that are obviously not who or what they say they are. that goes to credibility of the person and ultimately this platform.
