Hi Emre,

 

Yes, Upwork allows users from China to create their profiles and to join Upwork after approval of their accounts. 

It's important that you don't share your account or login credentials with anybody and don't log into other users' accounts as it's a serious violation of Upwork ToS.

Yes, occasionally scammers are known to lie....

Doesn't matter though as even if true (it isn't) the advice given above still stands.

To be clear this is someone trying to scam you. Report the person to UW and move on. Do NOT entertain these kinds of requests ever.
