It is possible if they got your paypal password.
First thing you should do is change your password asap
Contact paypal customer service and tell them what happened.

Hope it will help

SOURCE: The transaction for paypal didn't work on the page.

Why has my credit or debit card been charged twice?

Question :
Answer :

Duplicate charges may be the result of sending a payment multiple times; for example, if you clicked the Send Money button several times. If the duplicate charge is the result of multiple payments that you made, the charges will not be credited to your card. You will need to contact the recipient to request a refund. To check for duplicate payments, please consult your History page.

1. Log in to your account at
2. Click the History subtab.
3. Click the status of any transaction for more information.;jsessionid=JJsGhmp3nRbthhZyBnb05ymfRVylTGLQnkhRv3kK92lhWk6bQx74!964416863?locale=en_US&_dyncharset=UTF-8&countrycode=US&cmd=_help&serverInstance=9003&t=solutionTab&ft=searchTab&ps=solutionPanels&solutionId=12990&isSrch=Yes

    It definitely looks like a scam. DON'T click on any links in the message. You'll probably get hit with computer malware if you do, or the scam artist will try to get access to your financial information.

    1 Answer Review - Are they Legit or Scam?

    personally, I do not use Paypal, it is very unsecure. I have had illegal transactions via Paypal using my details. if the company is legit, surely they should accept credit/debit card payment over the phone. you have insurance with credit cards and some debit cards. most reputable companies have a sales department when you phone them and would accept payment over the phone. this very morning I placed an order with a company but the transaction tried to go via Paypal, so I e-mailed them instead and now I can phone with my card details. Every good, reputable company should do the same. Personally I will NEVER use Paypal

    Paypal is it safe ?

    It is safe. It is owned by eBay, and is spreading in popularity. You open an account, and connect that to a source of funding. Paypal likes to connect to a bank account (personally I never would), but you can connect to a credit card (what I did).

    When you make a purchase (often eBay) you can specify payment by Paypal, so that the merchant never sees your personal funding source. Then Paypal makes the deduction from you.

    It seems to be biased in favour of the buyer, as it offers 'purchaser insurance' against being scammed, and you can request a scam purchase be reversed.

    When operating on-line with Paypal, use a secure connection, not in a cafe, a good quality password (letters, numbers, and a symbol or 2) and change it regularly.

    Paid without details

    Is this a PayPal issue? You should have an e-mail to say the amount paid and to who. If you haven't go to the PayPal website and look at your transaction log. If it's not there you haven't paid for anything. However you could have been conned into giving your details. If so change your password and inform your card provider that you wish to put a stop on the cards and get new ones.
    However it's possible that PayPal link on the site you visited wasn't working properly. If in doubt contact the site you "purchased" the thing from to see if you have!
