Pls help me, geepay is asking for my Upwork url and when I post it I get this response, I don't know what they want me to do again

Maybe you added a "space" after the url. Check to confirm there are no spaces in or after your address.

Events / Re: Mummified Man, Stoneman Willie, To Be Buried After 128 Years On Display In US by JohnPortar: 4:42pm On Oct 06, 2023

Hmmm, accidentally? Oyibo using the black man for experiments, why can't use white for dis?

A black man, their usual guinea pig. Did this man not have families? Were there not any rights accruable to the family for this kind of display? Who even authorized this in the first place? For centuries they didn't let old Willy rest in peace. Gross!!

He's actually White. Dial the racism down and respect the dead.

Hello house,

Please I need your help
I opened my Upwork account last year, I've been on and off though. I've not gotten any job offer despite sending proposals. My niche is Data Analysis.
Recently my profile is set to private by Upwork and I'll have to get an offer first before I can reset it to public or so
What do I do now?
Where am I going wrong?

Below is a link to my profile

You don't necessarily need to get offers to set your profile back to public. You can purchase the Freelancer Plus plan, you will be given 80 connects and can set your profile back to public.

However, I really doubt setting your profile to public will do you much help right now as people might still not see it except it's highly optimized.

Hello guys! Please does grey USD still works?
No, it doesn't. Use Geegpay instead.

Hello good day. please is there an implication on the forum if one uses NIN in place of TIN?
Right now, there are no implications as it seems to work fine. However, you know how Upwork reacts to false information.

All the ones you've been paying how many roads have they fixed for u?
Every one of you wants to 'japa', when you get there, you pay taxes without complain.

You claim you don't want to pay in Nigeria because of corruption as if na only Nigeria corruption dey.

Lagos state is miles ahead of other states in Nigeria (despite corruption) because the state has more than enough money.

Give Nigeria a chance, there is only so much those "corrupt people" can "eat"

Please, how did you go about it?

I applied in February. It's still not available.

I keep getting the following when I check the website

RequestID already exists for this. Please contact the nearest tax office.

I was stuck here for about 3 months too. I visited their office and got it under 10 mins.

Put your NIN there and you're good. It's what I did and I've been withdrawing my funds without any hitch
Whatever is worth doing, is worth doing well.

Upwork has been deducting your tax, the least you can do is make sure it gets to the government.

TV/Movies / Re: EFCC Warns Skitmakers, Movie Producers Over Unauthorized Use Of Jackets, Symbols by JohnPortar: 7:29pm On Jun 21, 2023
What is wrong with this clowns?

How many American movies require fbi permission before making scenes with FBI paraphernalia.?

They want to regulate a film industry they did not create?

Instead of this idiots to focus on political thieves.

Did you actually Google this or you just assumed that's how it works?


TV/Movies / Re: EFCC Warns Skitmakers, Movie Producers Over Unauthorized Use Of Jackets, Symbols by JohnPortar: 7:27pm On Jun 21, 2023
They should cite the law that prohibits it if there is any.
Impersonating law enforcement agencies is a crime, boss.

A serious government will formulate laws to encourage movie makers to use government facilities to make their movies. Yes, that's why Hollywood is where it is today. They give them helicopters, weapons, gadgets, office, and everything else they need to make films.

I don't know when we will start having a responsible government that will realize that they have a duty to create jobs and create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.

You mean the same Hollywood where you can get sued for using FBI or CIA logos?

Those movies don't use the real seals or uniforms as it's considered impersonating a law enforcement agency.

you can generate TIN with your bvn on the joint tax board website. https:// tinverification. jtb. gov. ng/

close the spaces.
This is the response I get whenever I try that.

As at today, it's 200k flat fee.

Okay, I think I am interested in this but I have a question.

What name will the account carry? I understand that you can't withdraw funds into a bank account that does not have the same name as your Upwork account.

I am not sure Payoneer would work either if the names do not match.

Alright, thanks
dude, add 4 zeros to it and you'd be fine.

. Please provide a proof that wallets africa is not a scam,I just checked, they have horrible reviews all over, I registered with them and got verified, I funded the account, but for some reason, needed to withdraw my funds back, but couldn't, customer service stopped replying, am surprised why such app is still on playstore or licensed as institution

I am sorry about your experience with them, but the last time I used it was 2022 and they worked alright.

So Payoneer can send to grey now? It failed early this year. And I guess the names on both accounts must match?
I don't know oo. The last time I used them was October when they held my money for months. But they said their service is back and I assume you can now send Payoneer funds.

AI is not going to replace people. AI is only going to take jobs from people who don't learn how to use AI.

This can't be free, I guess.
Be careful with people like this.

Most of them make more money teaching people how to make money than from actually doing what they teach.
