Account Suspended | Cannot Post in the Community

Good day, I hope this message finds you well and good. So, I have two issues. I have created this account because I want to post this to the Upwork community for help and support. I have tried all available means known to me post my issue on the community forum and reach out for support but to no avail. I understand that it is against Upwork's ToS to have more than one account and I abide to that. So I'd delete this account as soon as this issue is resolved. 

 

1. On Thursday, 29th October, 2022, I tried to buy some connects as I was out of connects and I wanted to apply for a job. As a result of this, I was requested to input my payment details. I did as requested, however, the card details I imputed could not be verified and for this reason, my Upwork account, Abdul-Aziz Osikoya, was partially suspended. I have access to it but cannot apply to jobs, accept a new offers, etc. It was mentioned that I can automatically resolve the suspension by inputting another payment details or using a PayPal account. I inputted another payment details which was accepted but awaiting verification. Since then, my account is yet to be unsuspended and I cannot do much with it. Please can you help me check it out and help me resolve this issue. 

 

Another thing that bothers me concerning this suspension is that I was the one who wanted to purchase something from Upwork and yet because my initial card details couldn't be verified, I was suspended. That seems absurd. Upwork was not requesting me to verify anything yet it suspended me for trying to input information about my payment details. Also I did not do anything to violate the Upwork ToS. Please help shed more light on this because I feel this kind of situation is very annoying. I was about to accept a contract offer from a client when this occurred and because of it, I couldn't. 

 

2. Secondly, I'm not able to post or reply to any post on the community forum from my original account. It says that I should verify my email or the reason that I cannot post is that I am not allowed to reply on a particular post. Please help me out. What should I do to resolve this issue?

 

Mind you, my email has been previously verified and my account is fully active. I have also posted previously, once, in the community. 

Thank you very much. 

 

Regards, 

Abdul-Aziz.

Alhamdulillah, After 22 days later I got back my Upwork Account. Upwork Support Team was fantastic. Upwork support monitored my account very well. As soon as I am clear from my side, I got the account back. In the coming days, I will be more aware of taking on projects. This is a big learning for me.

Hi, I have been on upwork for some time now. Recently, my Paypal had some issues which led to a payment that could not be processed and my financial activity was restricted on Upwork.

I rectified this immediately and now have cleared all past balances etc.

I am unable to buy more connects or access the help chatbox anymore. My account seems to be fine, but when I go to the help & support page it still says "Financial transactions on your account have been limited due to a failed charge. To resume your account, please update your payment method and pay any outstanding balance."
I am also unable to access any sort of help or raise a ticket. It has been like this for the past 5 days. Request prompt help pls.

For anyone reading here, I have also tried multiple browsers (Chrome, Safari etc) and still have the same issue. I also noticed I cannot send any proposals. Seems my account is suspended but there is not ticket, or way for me to raise a ticket. Would appreciate all the help I can get here.

Hi team,

My account has been suspended for a long time maybe due to long inactivity. 

I did my identity verification today (April 17th) but my account is still on hold. 

What are the best steps from here? 
Thanks.

Dear Upwork Customer Service,
I am writing to report an issue with one of my friend's Upwork account. His account has been suspended, and he has been directed to contact customer service for further information. However, he is redirected to the job or home page whenever he clicks on the customer service or help, or dispute links. He has tried clearing all the cache and cookies and accessing customer service on different browsers, but unfortunately, the issue persists. He was unable to contact customer service to resolve this matter, and it is frustrating, as it has impacted his ability to continue working on the platform. Please investigate this matter and resolve the issue as soon as possible because he must take the necessary steps to reactivate my account. Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

Hi Sadman,

 

Thank you for your message. I am sorry to hear about your friend's account. I am unable to discuss other user's accounts with you and I recommend requesting the account owner contact us directly for better assistance. They can respond to the email notification for the support ticket received on their registered email address to initiate a communication.

 

Thank you,

Pradeep

Hello, Thank you for Replying. 
Due to glitches, he is unable to respond to tickets as the appealing form redirects to the homepage instantly of upwork and the email at**Edited for community guidelines**. says it's no longer monitored. Also he had no response from**Edited for community guidelines**. If you could kindly create a ticket for him, it would be helpful for him to get back to the platform and start working as he is unable to contact support directly.

This was the request :**Edited for community guidelines**
