Buyer protection query

Hi All, I would appreciate your help with the following query: I have recently purchased an item advertised on Ebay and paid via PayPal. The seller refunded the purchase price and sent me a message asking that I send the payment for the item to him via Paypal but to a different email address (which the seller described as his wife's email address). My concern is that if I send the payment to the email address given to me by the seller and if the seller doesn't send me the item, I may loose the Paypal buyer protection and be unable to claim the money back from the seller or from Paypal. 

 

Could you please let me know your views.

Do not go ahead, accept the refund and go buy from a better seller.

I would also report him to Ebay for trying to evade paying his Paypal fee and leave appropriate feedback when able.
