"This number is being used by another account"

I'm trying to complete my profile but am met with a message that says "This number is being used by another account" when I attempt to enter my phone number. I don't recall making any previous accounts with Upwork using that phone number, and if I did my apologies for the hassle, but I could use a hand getting this to accept my phone number.

Hi Andrew, 


It looks like another account is using the number. This is just a gentle reminder that users are not allowed to have more than one account on Upwork.

A Customer Support Team member will reach out to you directly to assist you further with your concern.

I'm having this same problem. When setting up my profile it keeps saying that my phone number is associated with another account. I don't recall having another account and if I did at one point then it was a mistake. I just want to finish setting up my account already, please fix this problem!
