Re: Change location before verifying

I moved to Spain before verifying my account, and now the location shows as USA and I can change it. I would like to set my location to Spain so I can move on with creating my account. Thanks!

Oh please...


You created your account YESTERDAY and have since "moved to Spain" where you've been studying for years and likely have always lived? It would be so refreshing if one of you people just came right out and admitted that they tried to set their location to USA because it seemed cool and a bright idea and more lucrative, and got caught out by the phone verification thing.

Yes, I proudly live in Spain, but I've been working in the USA for some months, where I created the account.

I just expressed it that way so that it would be easier to understand and straight to the point. You really shouldn't take so many (ridiculous) assumptions that quickly.

I like how you even remembered to change your LinkedIn location within 24 hours of moving! Unpacking? Nah. Sleep after a long flight? Nah. Must change location on Upwork and LinkedIn.

And, of course, on the day he is "moving" from one continent to another, he has nothing better to do than create an Upwork account stating a location he knows fully well he is in the process of leaving within hours...

I would like to apologize if my approach sounded suspicious, but I have written after consulting previous user's questions with what seemed to me similar situations.

A colleague in US adviced me to get an account on Upwork only few days before coming back to Spain. Many issues have to be solved before travelling and I could not complete the account, as I explained before.  I would like to be able to finish my Upwork account by changing into my current ubication (Barcelona, Spain), as I have got stuck in the verification stage. 

Thank you very much for your help.

David, bad start in the forum!
With such bad luck that Petra and Jennifer have hunted you Smiley LOL

For more explanations you give, there is no apology. Did you do it to make sure your profile was approved? Perhaps a bad idea.
Hopefully this lie does not affect your profile.
