Does upwork available in China? 

Somebody from China contacted me and wanted to open a freelancer account with my name.

What Should I do?

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.

He said upwork suspended his account Because of trade war between us and china and He said china was blocked upwork

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

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

how do you unsubscribe that account if you don't have the credentials?

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. 

I am unable to DM you @Goran V

Hi Jonathon,

 

Could you please share more information about your concern so I can assist you? Thanks!

Hi guys, I am a freelancer, but moved to China. I dont know how to continue my work in China

Upwork isn't banned in China.

Scammers claiming Upwork is banned in China doesn't make it true. The scammers might not even live in China.

 

If users in China ever end up with problems accessing Upwork, it will almost certainly be due to Chinese restrictions on Internet access, and not because Upwork wants to restrict access to the Chinese market and potential user base.

Hi people are contacting us asking to create upwork accounts for them and give them control to our laptops. what's wrong with upwork in china??. could you please help to know if china is blocking it??

Hi Floribert,

 

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

Please keep in mind that sharing your account or login credentials with anybody logging in into other users' accounts as it's a serious violation of Upwork ToS.

If someone has reached out to you with this type of request, feel free to reach out to me via PM with more details. Thank you.

Is Upwork banned in China?

 

I have very well understood that Upwork allows access from China, you don't need to repeat that yet another time. I am asking this to assess whether it is possible that there are struggling freelancers genuinely seeking a way to continue working.

 

 

re: "Is Upwork banned in China?"

 

No.

 

re: "I am asking this to assess whether it is possible that there are struggling freelancers genuinely seeking a way to continue working."

 

Are you asking if there are people in the world - anywhere in the world - who want to work as freelancers and who are struggling? Yes, this is possible. I am one of them: I am struggling to understand why you would ask a question like this.

So why are you asking if it's banned in China, if you already understand that it's not?

Nope. There are scammers whose accounts were already banned multiple times, and their only struggle is finding more people to scam. 

 

I assume that you've been offered a nice monthly payment to share your account and help one of these poor, struggling souls? You might want to read further posts in the forum to see what happens to other freelancers whose desire for easy money outweighs their common sense.

 

From me also a scammer asked he can make more when this account is created in europe, and he offered 100$ per month and he asked me remote controll of my laptop but i didnt. First he told upwork is banned in china then i told him that upwork is not banned there then why are you asking like that then he told if the account is european made one then he can make more money i know its full of lie
