What can I do to expedite settling a collection?
I am currently dealing with a collection from an apartment complex that entails a $3,600 debt. Unfortunately, this debt technically did not "belong" to me, as I signed for an apartment for someone else, but they loss their job and got evicted. However, being that my name was on it, my credit report is the one being affected. I am currently working with the individual to provide me with payments to pay to the collection agency, but its just not happening fast enough. I will be getting married in a few months and will be looking for housing, and I cannot have this showing on my report. Please help! What can I do to get rid of this and raise my credit score?
