And gift the money to them right?

People use the gift option as a FAVOUR to someone they know usually, by choosing gift they will not be charged a seller's fee and you will only be charged I believe 1% or .1% of the amount yourself. This will save the other person money and cost you only pennies, naturally since it's being given as a "gift" your shipping info will not be sent.
Now here is where the important part comes in, if you are sending money as a "gift" to someone you are buying from you've just given them 100% PROTECTION TO SCAM YOU. By sending the money as a gift you have just said "I have given this money to this person as a gift and I am entitled to NOTHING in return.
So, if you are paying for an item and sending the money as a gift if you are scammed there is ASBOLUTELY NOTHING you can do to recover your funds. The police will laugh you out of the station if you want to file a report, PayPal will not assist you in anyway because you have declared it was a gift and we will be able to do nothing to help you, sure we can look at the deal and issue a ban, but that's it that's all, your money is GONE.
I would never, ever recommend paying someone under the "gift" option, ever. I have done it yes but only to those I trust which is a short list. I paid money to oringmonkey as a gift because he had done me a favour and is a stellar guy, I believe I may have paid Kevin (Brass Eagle Kevin) as a gift because he's a good guy and I trust him. However for you guys don't pay anyone as a gift, just don't it's not worth it. If someone asks respectfully decline, if they REALLY push the issue report them because that may be a sign you're dealing with a scammer.
