How do you report fraud or scam- PayPal account to receive funds using false information on Facebook

How do you report a scammer or fraudster you see on Facebook?  I saw a person using their PayPal account for people to send them money using a fake story or hardship they were telling people about on their Facebook page that I know for a fact is not true.  Can PayPal refund the money back to the people that have sent money and have been scammed?  Can the PayPal account be shutdown because of fraud to obtain money from people?

You can report violations of paypals policy but if they are just requesting funds then the onus is on the senders to validate any stories or risk sending the money anyway.

To report violations of policy go to paypals acceptable use policy under legal bottom of page and there is a link to report on the word report.
