Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
You should have her report this to the police immediately.This is exploitation of an elderly person and a criminal act or acts.She will have a chance to get some of this back through restitution from the conviction.This is more likely to get her money back rather than suing the person.
Report it here too..
Financial exploitation is when a relative, caretaker or anyone with an ongoing relationship, improperly or illegally uses the money or property of a person who is elderly or has a disability for personal benefit or profit.
I hope she will report this and prosecute this person for exploitation of an elderly person and related crimes.
