Just sold a gift card on ebay & the buyer has left over 20 negative fb's for sellers

I just sold a giftcard on ebay & the buyer who won the buy-it-now listing has not paid yet. I looked at their feedback and they have left 20 negative feedbacks for sellers (selling gift cards). I've never sold a gift card online and since I have this scammer who won it what do I do?

If they pay, I don't want to ship it out because then they can just claim there's nothing on it (as they have obviously done 20 times) and I would assume they would open a case against me and I'm out the $40 in which I sold it for (right?). Should I just refund them as soon as they pay and email them or email them beforehand.

If I called paypal would they be any help?

Any help is appreciated, thank-you

I was going to edit my post but couldn't find a way how to but...Maybe I jumped to conclusions a bit soon. I went through the negative feedbacks she has left and some sellers (not all) do look like they scammed her (because the sellers had other neg fb's) & all she buys is gift cards and she has had many positive transactions. I don't know though; I was wary about even selling a gift card on ebay & now I'm definitely freaking out.

They left negs for people with 1000+ feedback saying the cards were empty. I would believe some of the lower feedback sellers might do this but - someone with 1000+ feedback?

It sounds like in some cases they empty the card and then report it as empty. You will probably get a neg for not dealing with them but it would be better than giving them the gift card and getting a neg anyways! Also I think you should report them to eBay for feedback abuse.
