Welcome to the PayPal Community! I would be concerned in this situation, too! You definitely don't want to pay for an item twice. Was the first charge just an authorization? After reading this Help Center article on Pay in 4 authorizations, I found PayPal "will conduct a pre-authorization hold on your specified card for an amount equal to the initial down payment or one fourth of your total purchase amount." If that doesn't sound like what's happening here, I'd suggest reaching out to our Customer Support teams by clicking "Contact" at the bottom of any PayPal page for a bit more help.
