Default Plastic Bumper, Paint smudge from another vehicle.

Hi all,
I hope that you can help me. I found that someone backed up onto my '02 Intrepid's plastic front bumper and left paint smudges on it.
I know that it is on top because there is no depth and
you can feel the ridges of smeared paint.

What is the best way for me to remove this?
I was thinking of using rubbing compound but thought to ask here first.
This would also go along with someone that opens a door onto your car and leaves a paint scratch on your vehicle.
So, best ways to repair this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Bud

Use of clay bar might take it off -- it would certainly be the safest to try first, and we recommend that no matter the task, you try the least aggressive method first.

P.S. Forrest suggests Pre-Wax Cleaner, so I'd try that first.

Ditto on the pre-wax cleaner. If there are scratches, you may want to try Mother's scratch remover after the pre-wax cleaner. Then give it a good polishing and wax.
