    A client of mine paid me for some work with a few visa gift cards. He also gave me a number I called with Skype (toll free) and checked the balance of the cards, and it's legit.

    But now I don't know how to get that money to my Paypal account.

    The gift cards are just a 16-digit number + expiration date + 3-digit number.

    Anyone has any ideas how I can get that money from the cards to my Paypal?

    the ideology of what you are trying to accomplish is called a "cash advance" and is forbidden by paypal.... that said, it is allowed on Skrill. so see if uploading the whole balance to Skrill would help you. i do this with my payoneer balances

    There is a way but expect to pay HIGH commission.

    You can use localbitcoins to convert visa to btc and then sent btc at virwox in order to convert to usd/eur.

    The commissions on both are really ridiculous high but as far as i know is the only way.

    Thanks
