First of all, I apologize for using a fake picture. When I was creating my upwork account, I used a fake picture. Now I am asked to verify my identity. I am ok to provide documents and use my real picture. But will upwork verify my identiy and also allow me to change profile pic? This is not my actual account. I am afraid upwork may delete my account if they found I used fake pic. Please help. I love upwork than other freelancing sites

Hi Sir, Very thanks for quick reply. May I allowed to change profile picture after verification and fake profile picture will affect my verification process?

They'll do that anyway if you don't verify your account.

Plus you have now added a second policy violation of having a duplicate account. Do you really think Upwork won't be able to link it to your reall profile with 2 mouse-clicks?

This post is fun. 

 

The verification bit wasn't such a bad idea....

My dear Luce, you are a cynic. I'm sure that was the only thing Max (his real name?) lied about.
