somebody said they are sending me 1500 but i need to buy a 50 dollar ebay card to verify the purchase is this scam ????
Yes, it is a scam. You will not be paid the $1500 but would be scammed of $50. Repeat and eventually the fraudsters shall make considerable amounts from multiple victims. PayPal does not ask you to buy gift cards before showing your payment, IF that person REALLY paid. You just see a record of payment in your PayPal account which will tell you to ship or not. Your buyer may not even have a PayPal account, just sending you spoof PayPal emails.
Forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org and delete the emails.
