Also as there were about 40 transactions to he same person didn’t raise any red flags.
OP, I'm not sure why you'd think that multiple payments to one person would raise a red flag?
They could try a written complaint to PayPal and failing a suitable resolution then take it to the FOS but I have no idea how successful that may or may not be.
Certainly a lesson there to the mother to regularly check her bank statement if she managed to miss 40 transactions!
I just would have thought a new unverified account receiving multiple payments might get flagged. I’ve had flags for a lot less.
How did OP's daughter log into her mothers PayPal account without access to the password or phone? My PP account requires 2FA and texts me a code to get access.
I would suggest that OP tells the mother to put some of her daughters trinkets on ebay to recover her loss and dock their pocket money accordingly.
