Have you tried rubbing alcohol or even gas on a rag? I know i had bad stains when i bought my 01 tj rear tailgate glass and used vim which took it out after several applications.

Is it the plastic or glass? Also Im a little interested in what it says.

But you could use lighter fluid I think I've used that to clean off scuffs on air hockey tables

Hairspray and paper towels. Not sure about permanent ink, but have used to remove ink before without going out to buy other stuff.

Use a dry erase marker and scribble over the letters in a circular pattern til its all covered and then wipe off. This works on dry erase boards and plastic when someone uses a sharpie

In theory it should still work with the dry erase marker. Even if it doesn't take it off it won't hurt the plastic

Might try a "Magic Eraser"

You can get em in the cleaning section at your grocery store.

I use them frequently to remove "permanant" sharpie.
