You are protected but the seller isn't.

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this: 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

It would be very hard for you to find a trade, as you are using a new account with no trade history at all.
It is the seller that need to be worried about chargeback, not you.

Well depends really on who you go to and the level of trust with them. It's not likely they will sell you bitcoins over paypal if you are very new.

Like others have said, there's no risk to you but a major risk to the seller, so you could be hard-pressed to find someone.

If you're looking for someone you know to trade with there's CoinTouch.com which uses your Facebook social network to find people you know wanting to trade.
