No phone number to verify

I joined Upwork last night and am working on completing my profile. I can get logged in and it takes me to the "create profile" page. I can access the help center. I finished filling out the first part of the profile information. It says the next step is to verify phone number. I have no active phone number I can use to verify. There is nothing to click on to skip that step. How do I get past this?

Hi Susan, It is very important to comply all necessary requirements for you to proceed in working at Upwork as a freelancer. This will determine the ownership of your account. An active phone number is required for you to get verified. Please check more information here for ID Verification.

My phone is active, but it doesn't receive texts.  How do I verify my phone number without texts?

Thank you for your interest.  I have been working on this since yesterday.  I can't set up my profile until this is solved.

Hello this is not an issue but I feel I should not have an identify on the platform I don't use.

My brother recently started messing with my phone, using my details to register but unfortunately for him, he imputed the phone number on my other phone, that's Ini I got to know that someone is opening UpWork account for me.

Please I want you to close this account and delete it from your record so as not to mislead people. Thank you.

Hi Amoke,

 

We’ve closed your account from our end and we will take steps to remove personal data from your closed account so that it is no longer visible on the platform or in searches.

I would like to close my account.

My email is:

I cannot verify a phone which is not longer available. I cannot go back to change number nor skip this either. 

 

Thanks
