Cheat and Gyp :

Gypsies complain that “gyp” (“cheat”) reflects bias; but the word is so well entrenched and its origin so obscure to most users that there is little hope of eliminating it from standard use any time soon.

Note that the people commonly called “Gypsies” strongly prefer the name Rom (plural form Roma or Romanies).
