Is it in collections? If so get the total sum saved up and negotiate with them. Basically say I will pay it off in full right now if you remove the negative account from your credit. Collection Agencies strike that deal all the time from my understanding and CK user's stories of their own successes in doing so. Once you pay them though you will have no negotiating power.
