    Cute Little Gypsy Girls will...

    by LuckyJVT Written Aug 24, 2002

    Cute Little Gypsy Girls will try to Steal your wallet !! Be Careful. They do this little trick where one of them stands in front of you with a pizza box so that you cant see below your chest , while the other is next to you sticking her hand in your pocket.. Pretty sneaky.. I shoved that little girl about eight feet.. I felt kind of bad, but after all, she was trying to steal my money, right !

    BE AWARE of little old ladies wearing bonnets and dresses, walking with a cane. They are con artist that dress just alike and work areas that are heavy with tourist.

    If a man in a car asks you the way to somewhere and offers to let you have the latest Armani leather jacket in exchange for some petrol money, RUN AWAY as fast as humanly possible.

    Beware of unmetered gypsy taxis. Make sure you use the official taxis that are legitimate, just to be safe.
