I don't understand why your account got suspended because of the bonus that you received. I mean, you did great on a job and you got punished - this doesn't make any sense at all.
I received the response as my account is under review because of the client ID is not verified yet.
Please someone help me to understand the Upwork Policies and Rules:-
1. I applied the job through upwork verified client and I have provided all the details which are required from support team and My ID also got verified. May i know, What is the mistake i did?
2. Why my account got restricted for client verification process. Even I don't have any inprogress jobs with that client.
3. How long I have to wait for client ID verification. In worst case, the client ID is not verified or he is disappeared, What about my account status?
I am feeling worried and depressed on this. Please help on this.

I have received the mail seven days ago, My account got limited for financial transactions due to clients activity.And I have provided the details about the client and also submitting the documents for my ID verification and I got the message as My ID got successfully verified before 5 days .
But Im in the same situation that my account is still under restriction because the client is not initiated the verification process.When I contacted the client, i feel that he is not having much knowledge about the process/document submission. As he is very new in upwork, I don't know about his interest to take and complete this.
Im feeling very frustrated and worried on this.
Please someone help me to reinstate my account and i will appreciate that If you know how much time take to reinstate.
