Going back to pay in full charged-off accounts
I have a few accounts on my credit report that i paid a negotiated amount to have them closed. The amounts were less than what was acutally owed, but they offered me a smaller amount, so I accepted it. Now these account show up on my credit report as" paid off for less than amount owed". Would it be beneficial, or even possible, for me to go back and pay the rest that was due on these accounts? Would it bring my score up?
