In brief: Paranoid delusions

Your description matches someone who is at least experiencing paranoid delusions, and perhaps has a thought disorder.
Multiple conditions could be causing this, and the person needs help from a doctor. Evaluation with primary care physician can be the first step, but most likely consultation with a psychiatrist will also be needed.
