Credit Reports – Old Debt & Goodwill Letters & Pay for Delete Letters to Collection Agencies?

Its been almost 7 years on a old charge off – I was doing research online on how to improve credit scores – some sites suggested writing “goodwill letters” and “pay for delete letters.” Goodwill – asking a creditor to remove an old debt as an act of goodwill and the pay for delete letter – offering to pay a debt only if creditor removes the account from your credit report. Has anyone had positive experiences with these types of letters? I’m worried that if write such letters to creditors of debt that is fixing to fall off my credit report – if they would sell the debt to a new collection agency and the 7 years would start over again?
