Thanks again.

If there is a settlement, make sure she gets in writing that the debt collector will remove any unpaid debt or collections from her account so that her credit history is restored to its previous status.

Most of this is being fought on principal rather than dollars. If she owed the debt, it would be paid.

I mention this because of the comment about debt collector will remove any unpaid debt or collections from her account. In my opinion, the debt collector has not proven it owns the debt or that it has exclusive rights to the debt. It would be hard to settle with a company that cannot prove its ownership.
