Similar incident just occurred to myself. Called the customer service number and was connected to an agent to help me transfer the funds to my acct to pay a bill. The scammer asked for the info off the gift card, I called amex I was told to have paypal stop transactions...i even had the list of accounts and submitted via message center as well as email. I'm currently on hold which has been 3 hrs now...did anyone from paypal reach out and issue you a refund.
