![](/content/ckeditor/2012/04/19/Sara headshot 2012.JPG)Wow. Since we kicked off the #GetPaidNotPlayed conversation yesterday with a simple question – What’s your worst deadbeat client story? – hundreds of freelancers have jumped in.

Their stories are shocking – from a guy who still hasn’t been paid for making a video of a couple’s Times Square marriage proposal to a deadbeat employer who was really a Hell’s Angels front.

It’s inspiring to see so much community emerge out of adversity. Jump in to the conversation to hear from freelancers who are sharing their hard-won wisdom and best advice.

Here are some stand-out tweets:
