It's that time of year again. Time for the gypsy travelers to make their rounds doing half assed, shoddy work that no one asked for or hired them to do and then intimidate people to pay them.

I wanted to remind everyone that the proper response to this tactic is live ammo and plenty of it.

If you haven't hired a contractor or called one for an estimate, ask the people to leave your property. If they push it, open fire. They are thieves and bullies.

Blacktop and concrete they sell does not meet industry standards and they'll charge you triple what they first offer it for. Roofing work is sub standard.

The best thing is to shut the door and call police because if they've picked you, they won't take no for an answer. They will kick your door down and demand money. Don't be taken by surprise and bullied into agreements.

They'll likely show up saying they had a few loads of blacktop or concrete left over from a nearby job and offer it, presumably free. Once they've dumped it, they'll demand big money for it. They'll threaten to call police. They'll talk fast and loud and threaten you but they won't call police because police are on the lookout for these scammers.

you sound like you been watching too many episodes of my big fat gypsy life. Lmao. I did hear though that some men went to a woman's house at sitka wanting to paint, and while one kept her busy talking the other one surveyed the house. Yea... Right in the back door and stole a bank bag with 70000 dollars in it. Pretty much her life savings. I'm sure we will see it on the news or paper if the story is true.

I haven't watched the show. Years ago, one of the network news channels did a story on them. I know of an old couple in Floyd County that was taken by them a few years back. Just thought I would remind people before they get done the same way. Always have a written estimate from any contractor. If they did work of your property that you did not hire, call the police and shoot anyone trying to force their way into your home. They're not above hurting you.
