Help! My Grandma Thinks She’s Marrying Toby Keith.

Help! My Grandma Thinks She’s Marrying Toby Keith.

My grandmother told my family that she is talking to and going to marry the country singer Toby Keith, but that it has to be a secret because his manager doesn’t want it getting out for “bad publicity.” Multiple family members and I have tried to tell her that this is a scam—when she asked us all for $3,000 to send to Toby Keith—but she will not listen to us at all. I just don’t know what to do. She won’t answer our messages half the time because she’s mad at us, and she lives 1,000 miles away. She has fallen for other scams before and lost money, and she doesn’t have much to begin with, as most seniors don’t. Because I’m so far away, I can’t check on her regularly or convince her in person to stop this, and I have no idea what the right resources for her could be. She’s 81 and has had no real major health issues, but her mother did develop Alzheimer’s disease and I’m worried that that might be part of what’s going on here. She just texted my dad yesterday that she plans to move to Oklahoma soon to “be with Toby” and that he’s put her name on his assets. I’m worried that she’ll give up all of her banking info or something, and I have no idea how to stop it or help, and she won’t tell us any further details. What should I do?
