Try this and see if it works for you...
Function Get-Nested ($User){
    Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership $User | % {
      $_ | Select Name,@{N="ChildGroup";E={$Group.Samaccountname}};$Group = $_
      Get-Nested $_.Name  | Select Name,@{N="ChildGroup";E={$Group.Samaccountname}}
    }
}

Get-Nested UserA | Select * -Unique
