Can you get a refund on PayPal friends and family?
PayPal can’t cover personal payments so it is up to the seller to get that money back to you. However, if the payment was made through a debit or credit card you could get in touch with the bank/card issuer and have them issue a chargeback on the transaction stating that it was a scam.
Can you get in trouble for scamming on PayPal?
Yes, one can get into legal trouble for doing that. It is also possible for authorities to open an official investigation and request documentation logs from PayPal to see exactly what went on. People are not as anonymous on the internet as they think they are.
