seller contacted me though email saying that the winning bidder didn't pay and asking if am interested. If I'll buy it, is it safe to pay using paypal? would I be able to get a refund if something goes wrong?

Ask the seller to send you a Second Chance offer thru Ebay. This way you will be fully covered.

There is plenty of phishers out there sending these emails to all kinds of people. The only way to make sure the offer is legit is to get it through Ebay system.

They need to deal with the non-paying bidder, but you could probably do second chance or have them set up a BIN on ebay and pay with PP using your credit card and you'd be covered.

If the seller emailed (??) you, just email the seller back and ask them to please send you a 2nd chance offer via the ebay auction.
