Hi, I accedentaly discovered that I can actually Hire my Self. I discovered this because I'm shifting between my three accounts, my freelancer account and my client account and my agency account. is this a Bug? or an Intentional Feature?. I hope I'm not breaking any rules here, and I don't plan on Hiring myself and leaving myself good feedbacks.

I have split personality.

Yea, me either.

Surely that's something that's wide open to abuse?

Low JSS? Just hire yourself and leave yourself 5 stars and 10/10 private feedback. The commission going to Upwork would be a small cost to pay for some.

Hi Christian and Jamie,

 

To clarify, to prevent fraud, clients are not able to contract with freelancers on Upwork who have the same username as they do. We do have systems in place to identify abuse of Upwork ToS but can confirm the process is not allowing for the self-hiring to occur.
