OP's fake profile is still up. 


Glad we still have our maps, though.

 I've been stalking it too. I reported it like I'm supposed to and still up.


Same with the chick buying her reviews.

I wish I could give kudos to everyone who recently posted in this thread on 10/10/17, including the fake guy. THIS is why we need a better system for catching **Edited for Community Guidelines**

I'm having a problem with my location verification. I believe it's coming from the fact that when I originally signed up a long time ago, my address was different than my license I just uploaded. Now, I updated the address in my profile so it's correct to match my license. I'm getting a message telling me to contact customer service.


Please help!!!


Thank you,

Hi there


I am trying to upload my passport to my account so I can verify that I am a U.S. freelancer and begin applying to U.S. only jobs.


When I try to upload it, I get a message saying that I have tried too many times and gives me a link to email customer service. When I emailed customer service with my ID I received an automatic message apologizing saying that Upwork doesnt need my services at this time. 


I am now confused because I thought I already was accepted as a freelancer by Upwork. I have been applying to jobs left and right without any issue for two weeks now. 


My question is two-fold:


1. Do I need to worry about my eligibility as a freelancer or is this just the Upwork system?

2. How do I upload my ID properly? Is there another email address? 


Thanks for the help.
