To begin, raise a disagreement about the purchase (within 180 days of making the payment). Log in to your PayPal account and select ‘Dispute a transaction’ from the ‘Report a problem’ menu. PayPal claims it will help you and the vendor communicate to try to resolve the issue.
If you report unlawful transactions conducted using your PayPal account within 180 days of the payment date, you can claim a refund. You’re out of luck if you transmitted money to a scammer as part of a phishing scam or using PayPal’s peer-to-peer payments system.

It will register as unusual account activity if you receive a payment from a friend or family member for the first time or after a long time. PayPal will put the payment on hold for up to 21 days in this scenario.
PayPal or linked bank accounts allow you to send money to friends and family for free. The funds are instantaneously deposited into the recipient’s PayPal account, and they can get them in their bank account the next day.
