My account suspended yesterday. I could not able to find spot to post my question in the forum. Hence, i amm adding my request through this.


Please any moderator can check and let me know the reason. I have received email yesterday morning. and it was stated as


"I have reviewed all aspects of your account, and unfortunately, you are violating Upwork's Terms of Service. I regret to inform you that based on that review, it has been determined that your account will not be restored. The Terms of Service violation(s) in question lead to this final decision. Please be advised that we may not respond to further requests regarding this issue."


I tried to contact customer support and they also so, no reply for the reason. I build profile and have good reputation. I have invited 5 - 6 clients to bringyourownclient. Not known, why my account was suspended.


Can any moderator look into this issues. As, it was stated in the mail, that i may not get reply from support regarding this issue.

Why is my account suspended? What is going on ?

Well, unless you're Charlize Theron worried about where your next acting job is coming from and that you'll have to freelance on Upwork ... your photo would be my guess.
