Request for Photo ID

Hi there. I was wondering if it's best practice or even common for a potential freelance employer to ask me to provide a photo of my ID? Is this normal protocol? I was told it was to verify my citizenship.

Hi Alexis,

 

We'd strongly advise you not to share your ID or any of your sensitive details with other users. I reported the client and our team will remove them from the platform shortly for violating Upwork ToS.
