Fear of the travelling people otherwise known as the Roma. These people who have no permanent home are wrongly called gyspies due to Europeans mistaking them for 'Egyptians' (also sometimes Nubians or Turks). In fact, the Roma are an ethnic minority who originate on the Indian subcontinent.

Gyspaphobic people experience anxiety when faced with the thought or possibility of encountering a gypsy. Sometimes
While travelling in Italy, a young woman was kissed by a gypsy man who tried to sell her a trinket and when she broke down crying and struggled to cope with her feelings of anxiety, she realized she was gypsaphobic.
