Exclamation Please help! Negative Balance


So a friend of mine asked me to buy him a couple of things over my paypal account since his isn't verified (We talked through skype chat).

He asked me to purchase in-game currency. Anyway he sent me 390 euros and I bought xyz just as he asked me to.

Not soon after his account got hacked (not sure if he is telling the truth or not, but its not important) so he opened a dispute to chargeback my 390 euros, luckily I had ~150 euros on the paypal balance which is being held at this moment, but I'm still in -250+ euros of negative balance.

My paypal includes my real name, but I moved since the account was created. It also includes a mastercard which is my parents (And dear god I hope they won't know about this) anyway the card has no balance on it so they cant take the money from there. (and a fake mobile number)

I've already sent pictures of the skype chat to PayPal and I wrote them several emails about my case, but I've been googling for the last 16 hours trying to find out what to do. I read that most of the time the buyer gets the way and I am REALLY worried.

I know it may not sound like much, but 250+ euros to me is seriously alot, also I wouldnt even mind giving up that 180 euros and just abondon my account and forget this whole thing since I can't even go to sleep and school is starting very soon and I'm a total wreck.

a couple more things :

- I do not live in the UK or in the US
- This happened today and I contacted paypal today so maybe thats the reason they are not replying.
- My account is limited aswell

If you leave a suggestion please include where you got the information from since I've been told a million different things.

Thank you!

Your "friend" is ripping you off. This is not the fault of PayPal other then how they allow for such scams like this to take place.
Why did he chargeback the money he had sent you? Makes no sense. You bought him the stuff he had asked for and he got it. That is no reason to file a chargeback, there was nothing fraudulent with that transaction. He got what he paid you for.

If you want this money back you better ask your "friend" to cancel the chargeback investigation if you ever want to see that money again.
