The answer to your question if you have over 500 accounts that are past due is to purchase an enterprise level software that allows you to report to the credit bureaus using a metro 2 format that the bureaus accept files in. The 500 account minimum is imposed by the credit bureaus and you would need to contact Experian, Trans Union, and/or Equifax; set up an agreement to furnish data with them, and update your accounts on a monthly basis. There are several sets of laws governing the reporting of accounts to the credit bureaus including the Fair and accurate credit transactions act (FACTA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that you should be familiar with prior to doing so.

What is more credit damaging Bankruptcy or settling a credit card debt?

Bankruptcy would be more credit damaging than just having large credit card debt, mainly because it stays on your credit report for longer. One of the biggest disadvantages of filing for bankruptcy is the lasting effect it has on your credit report- typically staying on your report for 7-10 years. With credit card debt there are more flexible options and obviously when you pay the debt and does not stay on your report for as long.
