Hi, So, someone is trying to send me money via PayPal, but according to them, this message pops up "transaction pending due to no use of card, try again with an iTunes card of $300 or $600 to generate your reference number." They urge me to buy a card so they can continue with the transaction. 

 

Why do I need to buy a iTunes card for?

Is this how PayPal works, at all? Or is it just a scam?

 

Thanks
