Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

She, or her guardian/parent (if not 18) can find the application and required documents here: https://www.ssa.gov/ssnumber/

She will need to contact the US embassy in Frankfurt for for the mailing instructions: https://de.usembassy.gov/

She tried embassy they told her they could not help
Expert:  emc011075 replied 2 months ago.

That's strange. There's a link on the embassy website for help with social security related issues. Well, in that case she needs to mail it to social security office in US. If the mother, father or any relative lives in US, she can use their US address as mailing address and mail it to their local office. Or she can use her foreign address as mailing address and mail it to any social security office in US. But first I would try other US embassies, maybe in Austria or Switzerland, depending which part of Germany she lives.
