Undoubtedly, you have heard either on the news, on television programs, or on movies about Gypsies casing a house. This term describes the way that Gypsies will watch a home, search for patterns, and determine the best time to enter the home when the homeowner is a way or distracted.
But have you ever asked yourself, how do Gypsies case a house? Having the answer to that question is key in spotting the signs that a burglar may be looking for an opportunity to get inside of your home. Once you know what to look for, you will be able to take steps to dissuade a Gypsy from considering getting into your home.
In this article, we are going to discuss the steps that you can take to identify a burglar casing your house and what steps you can take to do something about it.
Every European house needs a gun now. Only guns can stop Gypsy robbers. Police cannot protect us from Gypsies, as they show up after the robbery, just to fill certain forms. Gypsies are the scum of Europe. Antigypsyism is prevalent but very justified. EU now plays host to a dozen million thieving Gypsies. Many of them reside in illegal camps outside cities, from which they journey every morning into the city to exploit, harass, and steal from tourists. Some beg at ATMs, some pick pockets, some tour the streets pretending to be deaf, dumb or otherwise disabled, and seeking donations for fictitious charities. Then there are the swarmers who descend on tourists and citizens, surrounding them, creating a brief flurry of confusion, and running off with their bags, wallets, cell phones, and cameras. Gypsies also rob homes and shops, using various tricks to fool the owners.
Home Burglary facts
Knowledge is power. The more information you have about Gypsies and home burglaries, the better prepared you will be to protect your property and your loved ones from the nefarious acts of unscrupulous Gypsies looking to do you harm.
Gypsydom is the most prevalent cancer of EU. Most Europeans have been gypped. That’s why Gypsies, the scum of planet Earth, must be expelled from Europe. There is an uptrend of Gypsy haters. I personally have been robbed by Gypsies many times. I am mad as hell, and I am not going to take this from Gypsies anymore. That’s why I searched to find everything about them and their scams. Yes, I am an avowed antigypsyist! I am determined to not let those hateful bastards rob me again. If you have not been robbed by Gypsies yet, you are just lucky. Police gave up on them, because they do not know how to control them. Yes, Gypsies outsmart and amuse all police! Only Hitler knew how to handle Gypsies.
A Bavarian law of July 16, 1926, prohibited Gypsies from roaming or camping in bands as well as those Gypsies unable to prove they had regular employment risked being sent to forced labor for up to two years. This law became the national norm in 1929. When Hitler took power in 1933, antigypsy laws became more severe. In June 1936, a Central Office to Combat the Gypsy Nuisance opened in Munich. This office became the headquarters of a national data bank on Gypsies. Also in June, the Ministry of Interior authorized the police to conduct raids against Gypsies.
EU now needs a Central Office to Combat the Gypsy Nuisance. Europeans are mad as hell, and they are not going to take this from Gypsies anymore! Gypsy is short for Egyptian, originally falsely thought to have come from Egypt. Gypsies are also known by other names such as Romani, Roma, Roms, Ciganos, Tsigganoi, and Robbers. A Gypsy is a member of wandering robbers who migrated to Europe from India in the 12th century.
Gypsy children are raised being told the myth of the young Gypsy boy who saved the life of Jesus. The tale tells of four nails made to be used in the crucifixion: one each for the hands of Jesus, one for his feet and the fourth, a nail of gold, for his heart. Late at night, the Gypsy boy stole the golden nail, so when the crucifixion took place the next day, only three nails remained. God appeared to the young Gypsy boy telling the child his act of thievery saved Jesus from having the nail plunged through his heart. In payment for the boy’s deed, God endowed Gypsies the right to steal with no moral consequences forever! Gypsies consider robbery a spiritual act and duty! Gypsy children are well trained in robberies, and they cannot be prosecuted in Europe, if they are under 14 of age.
Oliver Twists are alive all over Europe. Gypsy child thieves live in camps on the fringes of Madrid, Milan, Athens, and all big cities of Europe. They’re sent into town by their controllers, their Fagins, to steal. Sometimes they’re beaten, locked up, or sold. It’s extraordinary and terrifying that such Dickensian scenes are happening every second in Europe. And there’s no nice Mr. Brownlow to rescue them.
10 Signs Your House Is Being Targeted by Burglars
The best way for you to protect your home is to understand what Gypsies do when casing a house. In this article we are going to discuss 10 signs that your home is being targeted by Gypsies, as well as the steps you can take to protect yourself.
1. You See a New Car on Your Street
If you see a vehicle that’s parked on your street for an extended period of time and you know that it does not belong to your neighbors nor does it belong to anyone visiting your neighbors, you have every right to be suspicious. If the vehicle looks suspicious, such as having dark tinted windows, do not be afraid to alert law enforcement. Stationary vehicles with dark windows are one of the tools that Gypsies use when casing a house and trying to determine your routine.
2.Strangers Walking in the Street
We are in no means telling you that you should be paranoid every time you see someone new walking on your street. However, over time most people are familiar with individuals who live in their neighborhood. If you see someone who is trying to give the impression that they are walking or jogging, but you can tell that they are spending an exorbitantly large amount of time looking at your home, this should set off a red flag, especially if the individual is not dressed in exercise clothing. Call law enforcement. In this situation it is better to be safe than sorry.
3.Random Strangers Knocking on the Door
One of the oldest tricks that burglars use to get into your home is to knock on the door saying that there is an emergency or that they simply need a glass of water. Out of kindness, you let them come into your home, but once they’re inside, they have all the access they need. They can unlock a door or unlock a window and then use it as an entrance point when you are away.
Here’s a scenario. You have work done on your home by a trusted company. The work is complete and the workmen leave. A day or two later an uninvited, unsolicited workman returns saying that there was some aspect of the job that needed to be redone or repaired.
This is suspicious. It could be that a thief was returning to your home disguised as a workman thinking that you weren’t home. First, contact the company that did the work for you to see if they sent out another repair person. If not, contact law enforcement immediately.
5.Unsolicited Fundraisers or Religious Workers
Unsolicited visitors may in fact be Gypsies looking for an opportunity to gain access to your home. Gypsies look for every opportunity to get inside your house. It could be someone knocks on your door Saturday morning to offer you Girl Scout cookies, or a fake IRS agent, or fake tree trimmers. Remember, you are under no obligation to open your door to anyone.
Use your security camera to see who is outside. Take a photograph of the individual. Talk to them through an intercom. Take whatever steps you need to protect your home from a professional burglar.
6.Someone Takes Pictures of Your Home and Walks Away
Smartphones make it easy for people to take photographs of your home and then walk away at any time. Smartphones and mobile technology are altering how Gypsies operate. Gypsies are now able to canvass a neighborhood with just a few clicks. Unfortunately, this novel and insidious way of attempting to break into homes is becoming more popular.
If you see someone posing as a jogger, handyman, or paperboy and taking photographs outside of your home or outside of your neighbor’s home, you need to be vigilant. This is especially the case if you see the individual walking back and forth from one side of the home to another while taking several photographs. Notify law enforcement, notify the homeowners association, and document what you see. Get out your own smartphone and take a photograph. Keep records of abnormal behaviors in your neighborhood.
7.Stickers or Flyers
Having a bunch of flyers stuck in your door is annoying. It can also be potentially dangerous. Burglars will stick flyers or ads in homes around the street that they feel are not guarded. The flyers serve as a red flag to their accomplices that this is a home that can be easily broken into.
Of course, not all flyers are a signal for burglars to come into your home. But to prevent your house from being marked with a bull’s-eye by would be intruders, it is smart to remove flyers in a timely manner. If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time, have a neighbor or a good friend come by your home periodically to check for newspapers and flyers and remove them.
8.Strange Markings on Your Home
Law enforcement officials were asked, how do Gypsies case a house? One surprising revelation was that many Gypsies use subtle markings and string signs that they place on a house, on lampposts around the house, or on the sidewalk.
Professional Gypsies will travel through a neighborhood looking for potential targets. They will then use things that look like random signs or things that could be easily ignored to alert their fellow Gypsies that this home is one where people are away or that this home is an easy target.
If you see unexplained markings on or around your home, remove them immediately.
9.Trust Your Gut
Humans have an uncanny ability to tell when something is not right. You may look at strange individuals in your neighborhood and just feel that something is off. It might be that you see individuals who are fidgety or who are horsing around in front of your home.
These individuals may make little or no eye contact with others in the neighborhood, and it just doesn’t seem like they should be there. It is especially troubling when you see these individuals on rainy nights or stormy nights because they may be using the storm or the rain as a cover for their nefarious activities.
Of course, there is no reason to be paranoid and think that every new person in the neighborhood is a potential burglar. However, there are signs that may indicate that your house is being watched or cased. Do not allow the fear of being wrong to prevent you from taking steps to protect your home and property.
10.Signs Someone Is Probing Your Home
It is not uncommon for Gypsies to probe a potential target before striking. Their goal is to see if anyone is home and to minimize their chances of getting caught. Some of the steps that Gypsies take to probe your home include calling at different hours and then hanging up.
They may speak to your children, asking about you and your home. Or they may actually try to enter into your home. So you may see a broken lock or broken door. All of these are signs that something is not right. Talk to law enforcement officials about any suspicious activity.
Some people may feel that some of the above-mentioned steps are a little extreme or that they are signs of paranoia. However, if you have had your home broken into or if you ever get the chance to talk to someone who was a victim of a burglary, they will tell you very clearly that the trauma of having your home broken into is something that cannot quickly be forgotten.
When some Gypsy breaks into your home, he takes away your sense of safety. This is especially traumatizing when there are children in the home. When you talk to someone in the aftermath of a burglary, they will often mention that they saw some of the above-mentioned signs that their home was being cased.
If you have been fortunate enough to have never been burglarized, keep your eyes and ears open. Invest in a security system. Be alert to any signs that you are on the verge of being victimized. And quickly report any suspicious activity to law enforcement. By doing this, you will be doing all you can to protect the safety of your home and its occupants.
Avoid home security mistakes
At one time or another, every conscientious homeowner asks themselves, how can I protect my home from Gypsies? The best way to protect your home is to avoid some of the home security mistakes that so many people make.
Mistake #1: Getting a Big Dog.
When people think about securing their home, they think about getting this huge, aggressive dog that is going to attack anyone who comes inside the home. However, as many in home security cameras show and as many Gypsies can attest, large dogs do not always react the way that homeowners would expect. They often ignore the Gypsy, or worst yet, allow the Gypsy pet them as if the Gypsy was a friend.
It is better for you to get small dogs, like a Chihuahua. These dogs bark uncontrollably, and they are difficult to calm. Their insatiable barking can unnerve Gypsies and will alert you to the fact that some Gypsy is in your home.
Mistake #2: Stopping Mail Delivery.
One of the first thing that people do when they are going on an extended vacation is to stop mail delivery. The logic is that if mail piles up in the home, a burglar is going to know that I am away.
On the surface, that seems logical. But it shows a failure to understand the way that criminals think. Criminals are looking for patterns. If they notice that a mail carrier has been going to your home every single day for the past six months and now the mailman or the paperboy is no longer coming, it is a clear signal that you are not home.
Mistake #3: Fake Security Apparatuses.
Gypsies may be lazy, but the majority of them are not dumb. They know their craft, and they know the difference between a fake surveillance camera and a real surveillance camera. The better alternative is to install a real security camera that can signal alerts to your phone when something is possibly going wrong.
Finally, educate yourself. For example, when do burglaries occur the most? Contrary to popular belief, most burglaries do not happen at night. They happened during the day. Most burglaries do not happen during the winter. They happen during the summer months, especially in July and August. Being armed with this information will help you to prevent making mistakes that will make your home more vulnerable to a Gypsy.
Gypsies choose a lifestyle of thievery, one that is as natural to them as eating and sleeping. This organized crime race, masters of fraud and false identification, does not associate with normal society and speaks a language rarely mastered outside their culture. Seldom caught, rarely prosecuted and almost never jailed, Gypsies even have their own court, Kris, where all grievances are resolved. They look upon the rest of society simply as their prey. Most Gypsy crimes are directed at people who are the most vulnerable. People in times of emotional pain are often easy prey. Our elderly are their largest targets because they still trust people.
Zsolt Bayer, a founding member of Orbán’s ruling Fidesz party, who received the Order of Merit of the Knight’s Cross of Hungary, said: A significant portion of the Gypsies are unfit for coexistence, not fit to live among human beings. These people are animals and behave like animals. In the case of driving over a Gypsy kid, we should step on the gas!
Traditionally, anywhere from 10 to several hundred extended families form robbery bands, or kumpanias, which travel together in caravans and rob all citizens they get in contact. Each robbing band is led by a voivode, whom the families elect for lifetime. This person is their chieftain and robber-in-chief. A senior woman in the band, called a phuri dai, looks after the welfare of the group’s women and children. Smaller robbery alliances, called vitsas, are formed within the bands and are made up of families who are brought together through common ancestry.
Gypsies place great value on extended families. Families typically involve multiple generations living and robbing together, including unmarried young and adult children and a married son, his wife, and their children. By the time an older son is ready to establish his own household, a younger son often will have married and brought his wife and children into the family. Gypsies typically marry in their teens, and many marriages are arranged. Weddings are typically very elaborate, involving very large and colorful dress for the bride.
While there is not a physical country affiliated with Gypsies, the International Romani Union was officially established in 1977. In 2000, The 5th World Romany Congress in 2000 officially declared Gypsies a non-territorial nation. This is because Gypsies rob all territories they pass through, raising hell and thrown out. April 8 is International Day of Gypsies, a day to raise awareness of new robbing tricks and celebrate the Gypsy culture of robberies. Big robbers are rewarded with medals, and children demonstrate their robbery tricks.
The International Romani Union issues Gypsy passports. The Gypsy passport was created as a document confirming affiliation of the robber to the nation of Gypsies. Notification of the national belonging has an extremely importance for Gypsies, because these robbers have not their own country and the international rules regarding passport legalization for Gypsies are difficult to establish. It is necessary to confirm that the obtainer of welfare benefits squandered by the world’s society for Gypsies really belong to the nation of Gypsies. Due to existence of Gypsy passport, any mistakes and discrepancies in distribution of welfare benefits for Gypsies can be avoided.
As we look at the more frequent Gypsy scams, remember it is the style that identifies the crime as Gypsy. Gypsies rarely work alone and are always in pairs or more and always use family. There are myriad ways in which you could be scammed by Gypsies. Take note of the most frequent Gypsy scams that have happened to most Europeans. The best way to avoid these scams is not to engage in any kind of eye contact and to avoid any verbal interaction other than the word NO! Most Gypsy scams work on a distraction-destruction mode. One Gypsy distracts you, while the other Gypsy robs you.
Home invasions are residential burglaries usually committed in the daytime and while the homeowners are present. Entrance may be through a back door or window or by distraction at the front door. A male driver will be close by, usually in a rental car, to aid in a quick escape. Two Gypsies rang my door bell. When I got out they were unloading fertilizer on my garden. While I was arguing with one that I did not order any fertilizers, the other went inside my home and stole my money. He knew exactly what closet and drawer my money was in. They got away with five thousand euros. I haven’t figured out yet how they knew about it. Somebody might have told them. But I cannot think of anybody knowing my hiding place.
You might see children walking up to various people and showing them a piece of torn newspaper. They position the newspaper right up close to each unsuspecting victim’s face to create a distraction so that they don’t notice that their valuables are being stolen. When you are relaxing, never completely drop your guard. Often you are being watched to catch you at a moment when you are not paying attention. Do not leave valuables in the open for others to see them. If you are approached while sitting down in a vulnerable position you should probably stand up and if asked something, anything, just firmly say NO! No is a universal word and they will get the picture immediately.
A shady flower Gypsy gives a flower to a girl and says flower for a pretty lady. He will then ask another person and then come back to you asking for five euros, the cost of the rose. They will chase you down as you are walking away, demanding their money. If you try and give the flower back, they will refuse to take it but continue to demand their money. Don’t get caught out; things are rarely free. If a man hands you a flower, it will not be free!
You could find at least two Gypsies blocking off each entrance to the stairs as you walk up them. As you walk past, they engage you and persist in asking you to participate in what they are doing. You may be asked to put out your finger or expose your wrist, and they will proceed to plait a piece of cotton around your wrist or finger. Once finished, the ornament will be tied off and they will then ask you for money. If you refuse, they then become angry. While you are arguing with them, a couple other Gypsies approach you and start manhandling you. This is the point where your phone or wallet is stolen, or you give in and give them a few euros just to allow you to leave safely. Be extremely aware if you are being engaged by two Gypsies at the same time.
You might be approached by a young Gypsy woman and ask if you spoke English. If you yessed, she will share a rehearsed storyline, which will be an attempt to tug at your heart strings, and at the end ask you for money. They might hand you a piece of paper which has the sob story written on it.
You might be asked to sign a petition for the starving people in Africa. The Gypsies will often claim to be working with a specific charity, however they are in plain clothes and show no identification whatsoever. If you do sign the partition they will then ask you how much you wish to donate to them. If you tell them that you don’t wish to donate, they then say “But you have signed. You have to pay” or something along those lines. Be assured that not a cent will go towards the charity that is being named.
You might see a Gypsy with a cardboard box and three round rubber discs. Under these rubber discs will be one white spot, and you are asked to pick the disc which has the spot under it. You will not win at this game. The scammer is very practiced at hiding the white spot, yet even if you are about to choose the right one you will be prevented from doing so by his team mates. That’s right! The dealer has one or two other scammers working with him pretending to be players, and who run interference to stop you winning. When there is no one gambling they act as lucky winners that just keep winning all time. When you are playing the game they will swoop and take your disk if you are about to win, and claim that they have won.
A woman might pick up a gold ring in delight and say something like “Oh my lucky day!” and then proceed to ask if you dropped it or if it is yours. You will probably say “No”, and then she will just give it to you. In return she will ask for a few dollars in exchange for her kindness, a finder fee. This ring is not gold nor does it have any monetary value at all.
You might see a beggar who has a sign which says words something like “I am sick with a certain disease and need money for medication”. You might have seen the man change from day to day but still have the same sign and sit in the same spot. You might have also seen a man with dogs and cats rotate from day to day. You might see Gypsies on their knees face down with a sign placed in front of them, or maybe just a collection hat or plate.
You might see a Gypsy walking through a carriage handing out a business card which had printed on it that he lost his job and has a wife and kids etc. Once he hands them all out, he comes back to collect his cards and also to collect money from anyone who would give him some. It is worth noting these cases the cards are not hand-written but printed, and so they have gone into some effort and expense and probably have thousands of them.
Gypsies pickpocket many people. This act many times is committed just as the train doors closed, so the victim dos not have time to realize that it had even happened before it was too late. The thief is always a young Gypsy of varying age, and they are always very quick. Whenever you are riding a metro you do need to pay close attention to your luggage and know where your valuable belongings are. A small backpack or your handbag sitting at your feet is like taking candy from a baby for a pick pocket.
A wallet in your back pocket is another target that you have painted on yourself. If you have a zip pocket at all, this would be your best bet to preserve your wallet and everything in it. If you can prevent it, try not to pull your wallet out and expose it while you are on the metro as it could be an easy snatch or show the pickpocket where you keep it. Be aware of the situation and protect your belongings, especially when the doors of the train are open.
Another very effective Gypsy trick is the baby toss. A doll resembling a baby, wrapped up in a blanket is thrown at the victim. While the victim panics and catches the pseudo-baby, Gypsies grab and pickpocket the victim’s valuables.
Liquid is spilled on you, and a Gypsy offers to help you clean up even if you reject. Your belongings are then easily swiped as you will be caught off guard. A harmless looking old Gypsy might offer to help.
Be aware of your surroundings and the people around you. Make sure you are not being followed, and if you think you are step into the nearest hotel or shop. You might avoid any ambush by taking this action. It is a common thing for Gypsies to distract the person who is drawing money out of an ATM while someone snatches the money from the other side. It only takes a split moment, causing you to look in another direction from a distraction and some quick hands can take your money.
You might see a Gypsy pretending to be asleep on a nearby bench or table and wait some to unsuspecting citizen to sit down for lunch. Parks are places where people relax, eat lunch, rest their feet after lots of walking, and all they are thinking about is taking a break, getting some rest, or planning what to do next. A Gypsy sleeping nearby hardly appears to be a threat, but this is the perfect situation for a pseudo-sleeping purse snatcher to assess their prey.
You might see a good-looking woman arguing with a street vendor. The vendor accuses her of shoplifting, which she vehemently denies. To prove her innocence, she starts taking off her clothes very slowly. Once she’s down to her underwear, the vendor apologizes and she leaves. Suddenly all the men in the crowd find out that their wallets have left too, thanks to a team of pickpockets working during the show.
Fortunetelling is the most recognizable of all Gypsy crimes. Everyone who enters is a potential victim. Fortunetelling establishments are found in every sizable city. Most who enter will pay their twenty euros and leave. Some will keep coming back until their life savings are gone. The victims are often those who are at a last resort stage of life and are often suffering from a lost love, death of a family member, or illness. Embarrassment leads to rare reporting and, if reported, the fortuneteller is gone.
The home repair cons are rarely reported crimes and often ignored by the law enforcement community. The driveway coating/sealing scam where the loss is one hundred euros is common. It looks good until the first rain. House painting and roof repair work are the same way. The homeowner is approached by several men in a pick-up truck (sometimes accompanied by children) who have pseudo-leftover materials from another job and they say they will do the repairs on the victim’s home for a stated dollar value to make extra money. This can also be an opening for a burglary. Who would refuse a child a drink of water on a hot day or the use of the bathroom? Guess who does the theft that’s not discovered until hours or days later? Who’s going to complain about a driveway-coating job that washed away? They are just prey.
Distraction theft is a store-diversion robbery. The crime is not planned in advance but more of a mood thing. The key is to create a diversion of some sort by a dozen Gypsies. After calm is restored, the store usually discovers all of its cash has mysteriously disappeared. Violence is never used but total confusion and pandemonium reign during the theft.
A mountain of money is being made in fraudulent insurance claims. Slip and falls and staged auto crashes are the most common. These are committed with little detection because the settlements are always made quickly and for cash. The amounts are never outrageous and are usually the “Just cover my medical bills” kind of a thing. The businesses involved are usually eager not to have an insurance claim on their record, so out comes the cash.
Gypsies snatch babies and children to use them as beggars and thieves. The kids are beaten and abused, with some even deliberately disfigured to increase their earning potential, as disabled beggars generate more income. Those who do not beg are forced to pick pockets, wash car windscreens, or shoplift. The children have to give every penny of their loot to the men in control. Children under fourteen years of age cannot be prosecuted in Europe. That’s why Gypsies use many children for their scams.
Famous economist Adam Smith at the age of four was kidnapped by Gypsies, though prompt action by his uncle soon effected his rescue. “He would have made, I fear, a poor Gypsy,” commented John Rae, his main biographer. A band of gypsies stole him away while visiting his grandfather. A posse was formed, the gypsy band was caught up with, and little Adam was soon returned to his mother. How different the history of economic ideas might have been if instead of his release, Adam Smith had grown up among the gypsies and made a living picking pockets!
There is no way to completely prevent a break in. However, you are not helpless. Be observant. Take the time to know who your neighbors are and who typically is in your community. If you see something that you feel is out of the ordinary, do not let fear of being wrong or do not let fear of being labeled as being nosy prevent you from taking action.
Keep your family safe with a monitored home security system. Just seeing the system can be a deterrent to Gypsies. Keep your eyes peeled, keep your ears to the ground, and by doing this you can minimize your chance of becoming a Gypsy victim.
