I just started using Paypal for a few months. Today I found out my bank account linked to Paypal having a negative balance. I check my bank account and it was pre authorized Payapl debit. I then check my paypal account and I have enough to cover the charge. Problem: I did not remember any purchase on that specific date. Also I found another 2 Paypal debit on my bank account. I always have money in Paypal before spending any.
Question: Is my Paypal account hacked or compromised please? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I have not talked to Paypal yet. Do I say fraud or just dispute payment?

I always check my balance before spending with paypal. That was why I took 2-3 weeks to pay Wizard on a bet. I transferred money to Paypal then I paid Wizard. It took 2 weeks for money from my bank to Paypal. But my account was debited the next day.
