PROMBLEM SOLVED. He has taken my bank account details off his paypal account and I changed my internet banking password. So he cant touch my bank account anymore. Thanks girls.

Take your bank account off of paypal and if that means no pay pal so be it. More importantly get the trust issues with your son figured out . If he is allowed to steal from you then who is next.

Paypal will send you a key code device, so that if you can't put the random numbers in it won't work. Keep your key with you and he won't be able to order anything without your permission.

Change the password! Then he can't access your account & steal your money. What he is doing is theft & he needs to be taught that before it gets much worse.

I think you should have a word with your son about what he is doing... ie using your paypal account without asking you first... Then you should change you paypal password so that it is only you that can pay for things.....
I think like someone else has said here that his own bank account would be a good idea. Is he not working? Does he not have his own money? He needs to know that he can't just take money from you, it has to be earnt.
Good Luck and I hope you can both sort this out between you...

my son is 20 years old and he has his own bank account in which he has a small income coming into but has nothing in it because he is always paying me back.

This would be a good opportunity for him to have his own bank account and open the discussion about income, outgoing cash and budgeting...my 18 year old step daughter was pretty much in the same boat. We didn't want to "cut her off" or make her feel bad for asking for money, so we helped her set her own bank account and we supply a monthly stipend for her expenses. She must keep her budget and it is her responsibility. We have a 14 year old at home and she spends alot of time away during dinner time with volleyball and basketball activity. Our agreement with her is she may spend up to $10 dollars for dinner with the team, but anything over $20 she must call and get approval BEFORE she uses her card. What a great opportunity to have great communication with your teenager...GOOD LUCK!!
