Are you Moderators NOT AWARE that these requests to change country are (mostly) to bypass Upwork's filtering system for new freelancers??
You guys truly need to look at **Edited for Community Guidelines** tricks on how to get registered on Upwork. Chances are, they didn't get accepted on Upwork, then create a new profile as a US based freelancer (with a fake US mobile number as well). And then to get "ID verified", they need to change the country back to their actual countries.
So much for the "paid" connect thing to eradicate heaps of trash.
We're only seeing increases in freelancer count, but an overall DECREASE of (legit) clients. Guess where's that gonna take you when supply exceeds demand?
Any ideas why UPWK stock took deep plunges successively in recent months, while the S&P 500 and the market in general are going upward?

They're apocalyptic signs for this (once great) platform.
Thanks for your comments and concerns. We have systems in place to address violations like the one you mentioned and which can't be sidestepped by changing a freelancers' location.
