Good day.
If an account has been closed and listed as: Charged off as bad debt Profit and loss write-off. Does it affect my credit score in a negative way. If so , since it still shows a balance, could I offer them a settlement, and if so will that affect my credit score in a negative way?

A charged-off account drops your credit score by 50 - 100 points.

You can try to settle this debt but your credit score won't increase instantly.

It can affect your credit score. If your income is fair, then start saving money and opt for settlement program.
