If my sister recently received a collection notice for $400 for a gas credit card account created 15 years ago by her ex-boyfriend, does she pay?

My sister recently received a collection notice for $400 from a collection agency for a gas credit card account created 15 years ago. However, the account was created by my sister’s ex-boyfriend at that time and he had used her name as a co-account holder. They have long separated and she has no idea of his status. What do we do with this bill since my sister has no idea and had never use this account.
