is it this job scam?

Hi senior members,

I applied for a junior position through and received the below email:

Dear candidate,

Congratulations! You have been selected for the next step of the selection for the position in a well-known international trading company in Geneva. At this stage, the name of our client stay confidential and will be release after the next step.

The next step of the process is to do a personality test in order to get the face-to-face interview in Geneva. This examination is provided by our company, it must be fulfill by the condidate alone and the deadline is November 30, 2014. The cost of the tes is CHF 54.- and will be reimbursed if you get the face-to-face interview with our client.

At this stage, you are only 10 candidates to to selected for the personality test and only 5 candidates will have the chance to get the face-to-face interview in Geneva.
Therefore, please advise us as soon as possible if you are ready to do the personality test.

We stay at your disposal for any further information.
Kind regards,

Though they claim they founded since 1989 in London, what I think it looks weird:
1. they asked for CHF54 payment through paypal (in another email)
2. they have a basic website with no contact info (No address, No phone)
3. the contact person uses gmail instead of business email

If I don't pay, I will loss this opportunity. What should I do?
