I'd like to reopen my freelancer account. I was told to contact customer support but for some reason you guys don't have a simple contact email address so I had to sign in with my employer profile just to post something.

My boss accidentally closed the account and now there is no way to restore the closed account. Letters in support, have not received any response for 3 days.
May be you should add some functionality to restore closed account?

Hi Luiggi, thank you for responding. I'm not sure how to handle this. My name is **Edited for Community Guidelines**. I am on the distribution of the "careers" email. **Edited for Community Guidelines** setup our account with Upwork. I had setup an account under my name with email **Edited for Community Guidelines** I had cancelled it once I realized we already had an account setup. My problem now is that we are no longer using the "careers" email. I should be setup as the main account holder and Tim should be setup with a different email, but only to have access to post jobs and speak with candidates. I take care of job offers and the financials. We are also new to Upwork and have a freelenacer we need to hire asap.

Hope you are doing well!
I had created an upwork agency account and I wanted to change some settings so by mistake I closed it and wanted to create a new one but the option was not their, I did some research and found that we can only have one agency account related to our freelance profile. Please help me out in restoring that agency account which was related to my profile. I have also initialized a support ticket but it's been a while and no one was assigned to it. Please help me out.

As requested, your agency profile has been restored.

All of a sudden I cannot login to my Client Upwork account. I had logged in several times.
When logging in now it states "Oops! Username is incorrect." I am definitely using the correct username / email. I then try the Upwork Reset PW and after entering my username or email states "Invalid username or email"
I have resorted to creating this temp Upwork account to seek Moderator / Upwork Stff support.

As the title says, I am trying to re-open an account I previously closed (another email). This is my second post regarding the issue. A moderator asked me to private message him the email of the account I wished to re-open but they never got back to me and I'm still unable to log into said account. Here I am again. Thanks!
