Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
You need to report this person to adult protective services.He has exploited your mother and taken advantage of her in my opinion.You need to consider applying for guardian of the person and estate..A guardianship here trumps the POA. Guardian can manage finances and also sue if necessary to recover lost assets.These are your options here in Texas.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.
Exploitation includes illegal use of a senior's resources for monetary or personal benefit, profit, or gain. Seniors may need help with their finances, but unless they hand control over to another person, they have the same right as anyone else to receive, spend, invest, save or give away their money. A family member, "friend" or nursing home may not take control of a senior's money without that person's permission. Here the CPA sure fits into that mold.
I hope you will report this and consider guardianship of your mother.
If you can positive rate when we are through it is always much appreciated.
