Sorry you have been scammed, you don't as a seller ever have to buy gift cards for buyers.
The scammer just wants the card number and you won't receive any money.
Sadly you had FAKE paypal emails.
If you did an 'off ebay' transaction and relied on FAKE paypal emails then nothing you can do about it as no part of the transaction would have been done using ebay or paypal sites.
