How do gypsies make money?
Many of you may be confused about how the traveling folk gets their quick fixes of cash, and today I will give you an insight into some of the more popular methods they use.
Understand that these are only generalities, and there is no way I can personally give advice on how to make money like a gypsy since there are far too many methods for me to know about, and these ones that I am going to list I only know of them Because I do a lot of research.
Gypsies make money fast and easy because they usually live on the streets and therefore don’t have the bills that we do, such as mortgages or rent; this means that they can focus more on what they need to do in order to make the quick bucks.
1: Selling scrap metal for cash
Selling scrap metal is a very popular way of making money fast and easy because there are always people looking to get rid of old unwanted scraps of iron or steel. Usually, it won’t matter if it’s a bit rusted because they can easily be cleaned up.
2: Acting as a moneylender or loan shark
This is the most dangerous of all the ways to make money. However, it is also one of the easiest because, unlike most methods of making money, you don’t even need any special skills to do it; gypsies love this work because they can get their money back, plus interest even if the borrower dies.
3: Becoming a pickpocket
This is one of the most popular ways for gypsy children to make money, partly because they are small enough to get into shops without anyone noticing them and can easily escape if someone sees them.
4: Doing the dirty work for other gypsies
This is an excellent way of making money fast and easy because it doesn’t involve doing anything illegal, but it does require you to either sell or give away your body in some way; this method is only suitable for young gypsy girls, and they will be expected to have sex with gypsy men who are old enough to be their fathers or grandfathers.
5: Gambling or selling or buying fake lottery tickets
This is a very popular way of making money among gypsies and other street folks because, unlike most methods, it does not take much time to work; in fact, you could spend all day standing in a busy street and still make good cash if you know how to do it right.
6: Stealing cars and then selling them on
This is a very quick way of making money but not one that I recommend because the long-term consequences are too awful to bear; this method will make you part of a gang very quickly, which means you could end up being arrested or even killed for doing it.
7: Begging or busking
In my opinion, this is a very boring way to make money because you often have no choice but to do it whether you want to or not, and how difficult it can be for the young ones when they’ve been forced into it.
8: Making moonshine or selling illegal drugs
This is one of the most difficult ways to make money because it takes skill, not just in making the moonshine but even more so in selling it without getting caught.
9: Picking pockets for older gypsies
Although this method isn’t often seen by outsiders, young gypsy boys and girls will be sent out to pickpockets as a way of training them up so that they can eventually move on to being proper thieves.
10: Becoming a thief
Of course, this is the most difficult and dangerous way to make money because not only do you need good skills to plan and execute it successfully but also because if you’re caught then the punishment can be very stiff; however, for many gypsy men and women, it’s the only way to make enough money to live comfortably.
