 To any UpWork staff.. please remove me immediately from your databases, and from this perpetual loop of emails regarding this support issue.. the fact that THIS many people have had a problem with your verification code lets me know that it wasnt a one-off thing when it happened to me, and the fact that it is such an ongoing and regular problem, and you havent fixed it, confirmed my suspicions that your verification and requests for so much unneded information is for the purpose of selling our data.. i have no trust for your organization, I dont wish to continue to recieve these "notificiation emails" every time someone else posts that they cant get their verification to work, and i dont give you my permission to use ANY of the data or information you collected from me on the membership that i never finalized, for ANY purpose... and if you were a legitimate organization, there would be a way to contact you about this issue other than on this stupid blog.

Hi Jessica,

 

Sorry about the frustration this has caused you. It looks like you subscribed to this thread and were receiving updates about it. We have unsubscribed you from the thread.

I am unable to verify any phone number because Upwork does not have a voice verification option, and my Skype number does not recieve SMS. My husband is in the Military so we do not have normal phone services due to moving around often. What are my options for verifying my account? I cannot complete my profile without verification. Thank you in advance!

Hi!

I am having the same issues as stated above.  I am not in the military but I am currently living in Spain for 2 months and my US phone number is not active.  Can you help me verify my account?

 

Thanks!
