Spam website

I want to check as I believe this is a spam. Someone is asking me to buy a £50 Amazon gift card to pay for a courier for an item I am selling. They have sent me PayPal looking emails from <removed> This has a link for me to add this gift card details in order for the PayPal balance to be released. My actual PayPal account shows no activity so I know this is not genuine. Can someone confirm that this is a spam website?

 

Thanks.

Its a SCAM, paypal would never tell you to send a gift card and certainly not pay a buyers courier without receiving any funds.

And Amazon is a rival company so that is out as well.

Scam, ignore.
