It was in collections before the bankruptcy?  It is still going to show on your credit reports, though it will (in the fine print at the bottom of the entry) tell that it was transferred or something similar.  It will disappear in 7 years under the Chapter 13 plan. 

Check your credit reports annually to be certain that only true information shows.  Go to annualcreditreport.com to get copies of all three r eports.  Look them over very carefully and file disputes on all WRONG information with the credit bureau reporting same.  They have to investigate and either verify or delete the disputed entries.
