Sony paypal and ps4

while playing GW2 suddenly twice it showed that I had 2+million coins. I spent it, and later my mother got a notice that rhey had in fact been purchased through PayPal. I didn't purchase them even though they shpwed up by surprise, so my mother filed a report with Paypal. Today she got refunded, but Sony has banned me from PS4. Has this happened to anyone, and what can I do? My mum wrote PayPal to try to pay them after all, even though I never actually wanted to purchase those coins.
