If the person bought the gift cards from Paypal Digital Gifts, it may have been compromised due to Paypal's negligence.

Well, I'm now over 20 minutes on the phone with Amazon after the code comes back as invalid and they're having trouble determining what the problem is. You didn't cause their technical glitch but you sure caused my angst by failing to follow simple directions. No wonder why you wanted to remain anonymous...
I've had some recipients who specifically asked for gift cards. I'm also in the camp of always entering my Amazon gift cards into my account as soon as I receive them, so I don't have to save emails or plastic cards.
