Can I get scammed with PayPal?
Once a scammer has hacked into somebody else’s PayPal account (as in the case of the phishing email scam), they can make purchases and send payments with the money from the account they have taken over.
PayPal may reimburse the seller if they are able to confirm that the account that made the payment was hacked.
Will PayPal refund you if you get scammed?

Is it safer to use PayPal or credit card?
Is PayPal Safer Than Banks and Credit Cards? In actuality, using PayPal may be even safer than using a check or your credit card or bank account to make a purchase. That’s because credit card companies are more likely to approve a payment dispute and refund your money than a bank/debit card provider.
