My wife watches that American Gypsy stuff on TLC about the Irish Travelers. They always seem to have huge houses and lots of money to spend, especially on parties and bling. Do they get it all from ripping off people? They seem to take in a lot to afford some of those really nice houses they show on TV.

Ripping people off and getting paid cash. They "sealed" my grandparents roof with gasoline mixed with silver paint and patched the driveway everytime they came through town, They also put on (poorly) the cheapest grade of plastic siding I have ever seen.. My Granddad could never pass up a deal. They had to be on some mark list.

Their men have crappy contacting gigs/scams, their women shoplift on an industrial scale.

They look at the US population as sheep to fleece.

My view on Gypsies and Travelers, given that they are technically ethnic minorities, is nothing but a long-winded COC violation.

A group of them got busted in Central FL by stealing so many goods from stores they converted residential homes into storage and distribution centers. Imagine a basic 3/2 home filled from floor to ceiling with everything a Walmart has inside.

I'll just +1 to what others have said. SCUM.

Here's one though that Texas took care of.
http://www.independent.ie/opinion/analysis/irish-traveller-to-die-behind-bars-after-one-scam-too-many-124307.html

"Last Monday, after hearing evidence that Rickey Allen Daugherty, a member of an Irish Traveller group, had duped an 80-year-old woman out of $12,000 for a con repair job to the guttering on her house, a jury sentenced him to life imprisonment. Under Texas law, Daugherty, 58, will die in prison."

"Even by Texas standards, which has the most severe sentencing record and highest death penalty rulings of any US state, Daugherty's sentence was harsh. It reflects the anger at the systematic scamming of lonely, elderly people by cruel professional con artists like Daugherty.
It took the Harris County jury just 18 minutes to send Daugherty away to prison for the rest of his natural life after hearing he had conned two elderly women, convincing both that they needed urgent repairs to their houses"

"The case again drew attention to the activities and culture of the 'Irish Traveller' community in the US. In 2002, Madelyne Gorman Toogood became infamous when CCTV pictures of her repeatedly punching her four-year-old daughter in the back seat of her car were broadcast across America.

Toogood was said to have been infuriated with the child after a failed shoplifting expedition."

I've watched those shows and none of them had huge houses. The one guy who was supposedly a well known and well off traveler bare knuckle fighter had a so-so house and his son lived in a shitty camper in the driveway.
The "parties" they threw were downright white trash poverty level. If you think those people are living it up from what you saw on those shows then you've got problems.

My first year on the road I worked a case involving one. He came into the area, first offering to do home improvement jobs, then drove around the county doing shoddy/shitty odd jobs. Went to some mountain communities and sharpened knives in some of the restaraunts and tried to sell them out of date kitchen supplies. Guy finally took a moving van from a local storage place in town, told them he was going to rent a storage unit (use of the van was free if you rented a unit), used a fake name, stolen card number, and took off with the van. The van was recovered in SLC about 6 weeks later.

They are opportunistic scum.

Ha, no.

Not ethnic minorities. Not the Irish ones anyways. In Ireland they like to pretend they are though. They refer to the rest of us as the white settled community.
They arnt to be trusted for any sort of financial agreement.

They do live well, don't doubt that for a second, it looks like a carshow in the camp on a warm winter afternoon. Of course what you see on TV isn't much, they are extremely secretive, and whatever they do on TV is a put on, done strictly for to give the camera crew exactly what they want.

I was just referring to what was on the shows.

The houses? Some are as nice as they look, most aren't. I have actually worked in Murphy Village, it is across the river from Augusta in Clearwater, SC, which is just off I-20. Many of the houses in the camp look very nice and luxurious from the highway, but when you go in you realize that it is an older double wide with a brick facade built all the way around it, I am not shitting. They have other strange customs with the houses, some of the largest most opulent houses have never been lived in, they build them and let them stand empty for a while to make sure there are no spirits, and sometimes they don't believe that the spirits have left, and they won't move in until they are sure it is spirit free, which can take years.







I've often wondered about those people and their houses. I drive through there almost daily on Highway 25.

Someone had told me once that it was a community of scam artists, but I always took it with a grain of salt due to the Catholic Church in the center of the community. I also noticed that nearly every single house has a religious statue, or shrine of some sort in the front yard.

I thought they were simply some well off religious people. Glad you cleared that up.

Just like Reserve Cops and Vounteer Firefighters. They are made up of folks who cant hack it the full patch lifestyle, dont want to, or are trying to. SRT_312

The only run-in I had with a Irish traveler was a good one. I used to drag race a lot at the local track when I was younger and they would frequent the place. I was 16 or 17 and shredded a fan belt, didn't have a spare because I was racing on a shoestring budget with my every day driver. I walked the pit looking for a belt, last stop was the pikeys, they had one. I offered them the last $20 I had and they gave it to me for free.

Ha, no.

Not ethnic minorities. Not the Irish ones anyways. In Ireland they like to pretend they are though. They refer to the rest of us as the white settled community.
They arnt to be trusted for any sort of financial agreement.


Yep, these people are really odd - hard to say exactly what they are or even where they really came from given their wandering. When I was younger I worked retail and the regional VP had a meeting about "gypsy" shoplifters. I thought it was all bunk until they hit our store. Came in like a pack of locusts, their MO was to have a few people create distractions and keep the employees busy while the rest stuffed everything they could grab into their coats. I've seen plenty of shoplifters but this was unreal. The only thing you can really do is have every employee on duty follow them around so they know they're being watched - but you can't watch them all. They never returned (afaik) so I guess they got the message but it would have been very easy for them to get away undetected had we not just had the security meeting.
Hitler had nothing on us: 4 million abandoned animals euthanized every year. Spay. Neuter. Rescue.

In my neck of the woods we see the Scottish Travelers - "Terrible" Williamsons are their name. How are they related to the Irish travelers in S.C. ?

They puill the same scams and often will confuse the elderly people by entering their houses in pairs. While one is writing up a quote to seal the driveway or coat the roof, etc. and thus distracting the elderly homeowner, the other is stealing everything he can find by going through draws in the bedrooms, They often get the elderly homeowner to pay $5K for roof repairs that were never needed and really never done.

About once a year the local police put out an alert for these criminals. - Police say to call them if two guys in late model pickup trucks with caps , ladders, and SC tags knock on your door.

I have no tolerence for these scam artists preyng on the Elderly.

Goddamn Micks. Well, at least they're better than the guineas and the Polacks!

Everyone gets their turn in the barrel at some point.

Some groups, like the Roma, ask for it. Nobody hates the Roma just because a distant ancestor tripped over a root and blamed the first person he saw.

Nothing Irish about them.
Ever talk with any of them? You can be talking to 19 and 20 year olds from Texas, and they all speak with an Irish brogue.
