Some of your services are temporarily on hold

**Edited for Community Guidelines**


The account is already verified and it even has the verification badge. He has also successfully completed a contract. Also, his working profile got banned but that's another issue.

Last week, unknowingly, he added my bank account as a method to get paid since he was having some problems with his bank account. We are brothers.

Since then, Upwork has put his account and services on hold. This is the message he gets on the top of his profile:

**Edited for Community Guidelines**


On clicking 'Get Started', the verification portal shows my name. He has been trying to contact Upwork for more than a week through email.


I request someone to help.


PS: I am posting it on the behalf of the person whose account is linked on the top. Since he's unable to ask from his account

Thank you Mr Goran

But instead of solving the problem, the verification process escalated it. Now Upwork has suspended his profile.

In the attached image, you can see the verification status of the freelancer. As you can see, it has already been verified long back.

Also, the Upwork help centre is unable to identify the problem and replies with the same message every time. The reason I'm asking for help about his problem here is because the Upwork customer support is giving off the point responses. It would be very helpful if you give me a contact number or any other information to directly talk to an authorised representative.

I kindly request you to guide me through this.

Thank you
