However, I don't think such a group would be discussing her finances. I have come to believe that this is a scam of some sort. My friend is becoming more and more attached to them. How can I check on this?
I am all she has and I live 50 miles away. You need to call your state's elder advocacy group. They have people who are able to intervene. Begin with the Attorney General's offcie or local sherrif in order to determine who the recognized groups are in her area.
