settling an acct w/ NCO, how do I make them go away?

[ Edited ]
I accidentally hit post before I wrote my message. So I've recently settled an account with NCO where a Capital One card was a CO and the total balance was $1900. They took a settlement amount of $1200, and I've read horror stories about how they still try to collect after they agree to a settlement. Does anyone have any insight or advise of what I can do to avoid them from harassing me further and how to help improve my credit or remove them from my report?

Did you get anything in writing stating they were settling for less than the amount owed?
