How long does it take for an account that was turned over to appear on credit?
Long story short, I was a co-owner of a business. I opened an account with cspire using the tax id which was in my business partners name. I can't remember if I also had to use my social security number. I'm no longer a part of the business and they didn't let me know I was still getting bills from cpsire until it was already extremely late. Now there is a $2,000 bill that has been turned over to collections, but neither of the collection agencies they told me to call have any record in the system yet. I want to pay the debt in full because I don't know if it will go on my credit or my ex-business partners. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
