I've been having the same issue. I keep requesting that the verification email be resent, but it never reaches my email. I've checked spam/junk etc. and nothing from upwork. Would you be able to resolve this for me?
I'm sorry about the trouble you're having with email verification. Could you please retry to send the verification email and see if it works this time? If in case you still do not receive the email, please let us know. Thanks!
