Default Can paypal take money from a closed account?

Ive closed my paypal account, and a few weeks later, a buyer decides to do a chargeback on me for a computer they purchased for $1500.
I provided paypal with evidence that the buyer tampered with the product, etc.

paypal denied the appeal and sent me an email saying that they have debited my paypal account.

however, my paypal account is now closed? can they still withdraw money? or what further action will they do?

thanks in advance for the help!

Hey... Let me know please... If I close my account with positive ballance: I wish to withdraw money on my credit card. Does they allow me to do it?
After some days my card will expired.

Better to create new account than keeping the old one (withdrawing the money = limit).
Your advices please!

Try for the withdrawal if your account is not limited - if it is, you won't be able to.

Yes they can. Only way to stop this from happening is literally to call your bank and put a block on Paypal and eBay from making charges. My bank charges $30 for this "service". Fortunately, the bank accounts I use are throwaway accounts, so if something happens such as getting randomly blocked for no reason, I just close the bank account so that no more charges can be made.

Remember, when the question is "Can Paypal do this?", chances are the answer is yes. They bend and skew every single rule in the book to their favor.

May be I didn't describe the situation correctly... But things are more clear now.
For example, if I log into and put "close the account" does PayPal accept withdrawal immediately or after some days of waiting? All payments through my invoices, no links with eBay!
