You need to contact Support, who will also question whether someone who lies about one main aspect of his account isn't likely to have lied about absolutely everything else on it.

Why choose Huntsville? I'm sure it's lovely, but if you have to make up a US address, then I'm going for Beverly Hills every time. Mainly because it's the oinly zip code I know for certain.

Why did you lie about your location?

(I might be late to the party, but...) If you search YT for "how to get upwork account approved bangladesh", you'll see that freelancers are being led to believe that the way to get your account approved is to set your country to US and then ask CS to change it to Bangladesh.

 

Poof done.

Hi Ines, 

 

I've seen and responded to similar and even more egregious claims before, and will reiterate that location doesn't factor into the profile review and approval process.

Hi Vlad - sorry if it came off as an accusation. I'm not claiming that's the way to get a profile approved, or that it even works.

 

I was just mentioning it as explanation to why FLs from Bangladesh set their location to US and then ask to change it (because they are being told that that works).
