Is it possible that a broker moves your stop loss?

I have read about people complaining that their broker is "messing around" with their stops, is it possible?

It is absolutely normal, that stops get filled with slippage, only the slippage should be reasonable.

When choosing broker, especially ECN one, pay attention to number of liquidity providers. The more liquidity providers broker has, the better stops are filled.

it was call slippage,Definition of 'Slippage'
The difference between the expected price of a trade, and the price the trade actually executes at. Slippage often occurs during periods of higher volatility, when market orders are used, and also when large orders are executed when there may not be enough interest at the desired price level to maintain the expected price of trade.

Slippage is a term often used in both forex and stock trading, and although the definition is the same for both, slippage occurs in different situations for each of these types of trading.

Hope it will be help

Stop loss orders are in fact market orders. When market reaches your stop loss price, the broker will execute your order at market price. You will not get a good fill with market price unlike limit order which is "OB" (Or Better) order.

slippage only affects the order itself. Stop loss can't be moved by broker. It is possible when using trailing SL, but it will always follow the price and never has to go against your trade.
