Marshall Attack left White thinking not to accept greek gift

The Greek gift sacrifice (13...Bxh2+) in the Marshall Attack registered another win again today in Let's Play Chess Online against a teammate and a friend here at chess.com. Unprepared for the greek gift, white fell once again into the trap. While trying to determine where did he go wrong, my friend wonders if it is possible not to accept the gift. I told him that the Greeks might get offended if their gift is declined and offered him to re-evaluate his 17th move to avoid the situation.

The winning streak using the trap in the Ruy Lopez, Marshall Attack line continues but I stopped counting.
