It is possible if she downloads apps from outside the store that those apps can download other things. Just because an app says it's apple pay and looks like apple pay does not mean it is apple pay.

She didn't download Apple pay though, that's the interesting thing. Though I bet she downloaded some malicious software and that is how a hacker got access.

It also might be a malicious app disguised to look like and perhaps function like Apple pay. It probably wouldn't be very effective being called something like "Android or apple pay financial credentials stealer ".

You were told by whom?

 

Most likely case is that Google Wallet automatically updated to Android Pay, which will happen on any phone with automatic updates enabled in the Play Store. It happened on the HTC EVO 4G LTE, HTC One M7, HTC One M8, and HTC One M9 in my household.
