I wouldn't do it.

What's their feedback like?

100 % but im still not sure.
do you think i should just pay through usual account?
sounds dodgy doesnt it?

I'd be worried that you won't be covered by PayPal's protection thing. If you are covered, I don't see a problem. It's the mention of "gift" that is ringing alarm bells for me - that implies it's not for a purchase and thus not covered.

What is the prior feedback for?
Are they selling other stuff at the moment?

yeah they have other things for sale at the mo. oh well think i will just stick to sending money the way i would normally.
thanks for your reply, x
