How about - sending a message to SIL via Facebook asking that a copy of the death cert and a letter identifying the required info is sent to DD at othergranny's address?
If it is all a spoof / scam then that won;t happen - if SIL is doing her job properly then all will happen - suspect SIL has been very stuck not knowing how to contact you and has done well in tracking you down.
Definitely worth getting the money and sharing with sibs - if you don't help her now, then in the future she may resent it if she is short of cash.

Whatever her final decision re the money, your daughter should definitely not provide all that personal information on the basis of one random facebook message from an unverifiable source.
By all means message back and ask that a copy of the death certificate and will be sent to your mum's address if she's ok with that.
I would also insist that a physical address be provided for the ID docs to be sent to. SIL has nothing to lose by complying, even if she wasn't messaging the correct beneficiary - apart from the cost of a stamp. Your daughter, however would be taking a huge risk by providing such extensive personal information to such an insecure platform.
