And I hope that during this interviews the English native language knowledge is also checked - by native English persons, please. The fraud in regard to native English language knowledge on this platform is amazing! It would not bother me if those scamlancers disgrace themself, but they fox and scam clients and manipulate their position in search results and are not ashamed posting in the community.

 You have to be careful of the pyjamas you choose (this is not in the ToS) but this could raise red flags:

you were more likely to get accepted. It all depends on who was on duty . . .

I totally understand the part of putting your account on hold, that could result a significant business losses, but why would you worry about Camera interview, specially when you have a camera, even if it is not from upwork, what harm could do that?  In this new era of social media, our faces are all over the internet. If someon to see my face while I am having my morning coffee with my pyjamas, so be it... I sense a lot of ego here Smiley Happy,

 

But the the VAT part caught my attention, I am in Europe too, I will need to read more about the VAT policies because I need to know who am I paying the VAT that upwork is charging me? The country I am in or where?

Update(can't change the first post):

 

I was contacted by upwork regarding my VAT issue and they refunded me the VAT they charged me by mistake. Now there's another reason to NOT leave upwork Smiley Happy .

I have no problem doing the interview...in my flannel pj's or sweats, makeup-less, messy bun and all...WHAT? You think I look like my pic everyday? You gotta be kidding me! It takes a lot before I blow-dry the hair or slap on makeup. So au naturelle it will be!

Hi:

 

After 2 years i'm again asked for a video call verification. Looks like the id, bank, address and video call made 2 years ago is still not enough for upwork. Anyone knows if they have a postal address so i can send them my DNA so they can be sure it is me and not a robot?.

 

Regards
