payment for items sold sent to wrong email address but address was valid

we had 2 people send money to a email address that was similar to mine but missing 1 letter.  the email was valid & the money was immediately withdrawn.  the 2 people are now out this money as they then sent it my proper email address.  is there anything PayPal can do to get this money back ?

my email address begins with 'neahr'.  money was sent to 'nehr' - missing the 'A'.

Depends how they sent it, if friends/family then no unless they funded their payment via a credit card and the card company will assist them.

If they sent it goods/services then tell them to first reach out to that 'wrong' email address and request a refund and if not then file a dispute for non receipt of item as that person has nothing to send them.
