Contact Name Change

I changed my contact name in hopes to protect my identity in MESSAGES, but I realize now that probably wasn't the correct thing to do. I have tried to change it back. I am still very concerned about my last name being displayed like that. Just two days ago someone messaged me, and later I learned from Upwork that they were banned from the system for being a scam.


Any advice on this?


And now I realize I posted this in the wrong place...and can't delete it?


Hi Maureen,


I'm very sorry to hear about your experience, you may want to check out this help article to learn why our Trust & Safety team may take action on an account. In addition, please note that by design, when you agree to enter into a contract with a client, we do share your verified name with that client at that time. You can check out this help article to learn more.
