This is a well-known scam. Your daughter isn't really due in court. When you have to go to court, you get served with a subpoena. YOu don't get a phone call.

The purpose of this call is to phish for your daughter's personal information and to get as much money as she'll be willing to hand over to settle this so-called debt so that she doesn't actually have to appear in court.

Your daughter should not call them any further and should block their number so that they cannot call her back. She can report the fraud to the FBI online at www.IC3.gov which is their Internet Crime Complaint Center and to the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov

You can see a warning about this scam here:

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
