With two I am up and close

With three I am nine or eleven

With seven I help people in need

With all eight I am an honest person

What am I?

Here is an example of a Tyos Riddle: Link (No offense, Tyos, for the title :P)

At $50\cdot 2^\text{number of hints}$ views I will add a hint:

Hint #1:

I think this riddle is so hard you probably will never find the answer that satisfies all of the above requirements.

Hint #2:

This riddle's answer is an 8-character word whose first 2 characters correlate with the first line, first 3 characters correlate with the second line, and so on. Just like a Tyos Riddle.

Hint #3:

The first two letters is more of a prefix to a word than an actual word.

Is the answer a

Deceiver?

With two I am up and close

De means "down; away" according to google.

With three I am nine or eleven

Dec means "10"

With seven I help people in need

Deceive is when you hurt someone by tricking them

With all eight I am an honest person

Deceivers are not honest people.

And this solution makes sense because

Each line is a deceiving one.

If this is right, this riddle is pretty amazing :D

This is VERY VERY VERY much of a longshot

Are you

lines or number of lines

With two I am up and close

symbol ^ , made by 2 lines

With three I am nine or eleven

|X , made by 3 lines

With seven I help people in need

FAQ , made by 7 lines

With all eight I am an honest person

Cant figure out this yet

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry but the circle in "Q" is not a line... $\endgroup$ – NL628 Apr 23 '18 at 18:32

Based on the answer given by @smriti, I think the answer is:

Straight
It matches all the answers given by @smirti plus

With all eight I am an honest person

Straight is a synonym of honest.
