    @Kenneth Geyer ,

    I think due to security reasons it will be difficult to request help for someone else's account. We have a different forum where these issues are supported. You can contact us for support using the form or access the Microsoft Answers Community who can help you further . I would suggest you to check the recovery options at the links below and it can help for your acquaintance .
