comment Money and Cards in the US
In three of those instances, the bank called me about irregular transactions. I simply had to refuse the transactions over the phone. In one instance, my card was used to withdraw cash at an ATM right after I did. All in all, I feel that it was a minor annoyance easily handled.

comment What are police procedures in France when the victim is a traveler
What about contacting her embassy in France and ask for advice? For example, the UK government is providing a brochure on this topic.

When is she due to appear in court? Honestly, I would not want to mess with court in a foreign country, regardless of the country. I would pay and swallow my pride.
