Is this a scam?

Someone bought an item from me on ebay and they wanted a gift card along with the item. They paid for the gift card. I thought I was going to buy the gift card with the money they sent but paypal was asking for receipt and photo verification before I can have access to the money I was sent. I don't want to buy a 300 dollar gift card with my own money and then never see those 300 dollars again. Someone help me.

Its a SCAM, you will never get paid as they are using a hijacked ebay account.

No funds in your balance means  you have not been paid.

Any emails you are getting are FAKES.

Oh! How do I tell them that I don't want to go through with the transaction?

I canceled the order. And blocked their number. Thank you for your help. I didn't feel good about this situation so I'm glad I didn't go through with it.

Re: Is this a scam?

I got an offer for an item on ebay. They offered to pay me and asked me to buy a 300 gift card. I declined. They also asked for my paypal email which I gave. Can someone access my paypal account through my email?
