But you're neither in the UK nor the US and aren't "The Aussie Voice" and don't have a micro studio in New York and never went to Harvard any more than the dozens of other fake profiles using the same trick.


LOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!! It's that guy again!  I can't believe this is just one REALLY STUPID guy that keeps coming back to the forum and then suspended.

There are at least a dozen of them left - last time I looked there were more, but it looks like they were mostly rejected anyway (Upwork, what is the point of leaving rejected profiles up??)


Plus the original top-rated high earner they all stole the overview from, of course.

In creating my profile, I cannot input an address other than one in the USA. I would like my country to be Thailand, where I am located. Please advise.

Hi I have the same issue - please help!


I'm from the U.K. but temporarily residing in New York. I want to open a Profile with Upwork, and entered my 'home' address as the UK, which is correct. Now in order to verify my account, they want to send a confirmation code to my phone, but the default country code is set to +44 and won't let me put my temporary US number in. This is super annoying as it won't let me go back and change the address/home country anymore, and it will not let me change the +44 country code which will not receive texts while here in the US! Any suggestions?
