Hi My odesk account is under review for more than 3 weeks now.I was told to close all my open job which I did. And when I contacted after the two weeks period, I was again given the same message that either your job are open or two week time not finished yet. But both conditions are met be me. It is 17 days now but now the worst thing is that I am not getting a response from odesk. I am really upset as I can lose my clients. Anybody who can please help me and guide me what to do? Thanks

I can't help unfortunately, but take a look at my thread, "Are there any real people working at Odesk...?" You and I are in the same boat. PS: I think I saw something on Odesk that says you can still work with your former clients if your account is under review. Also, they seem to have reinstated my bidding privileges after the two weeks was up, even though they insist they can't complete the review.

Hi Karim, Going through review process doesn't prevent freelancers from withdrawing their funds or being offered a job by a client. Please, check this Support article for more information.

What is even more strange is that I can bid on jobs, I get odesk pilling those job applications under my "job application" folder and let me know that I have only so many left of my limit of 25, but when I check to see if I am listed under that particular job, my name is missing. STRANGE! Why is then my application considered against the maximum amount allowed if that particular client never receives it?
