Good Morning! I have been lurking for a few days now and I love this site! I hope that it gets me on the right track. Regarding the repo listed below, I am trying to figure out what will be the correct thing to ask from the OC? I have never been contacted by WFFINANCIAL asking for any sort of payment or by a CA either. As you can see there is no balance on the car. The car was repo twice(first time i paid and received the vehicle back in my possession) the second time I had no way of making the payment, car was repoed and sold at auction. If you notice under Payment status it saids the word skip? What that mean? What should I do in my case? What should I request from Wells Fargo? I am new to this so please advise. Thank you. __________________________________________________

Hi Kixforpa! Welcome to the FICO Forums!
"Skip" means that they can't find or contact you, or that you changed addresses/moved and didn't notify them.
What is your goal with this charged-off loan account? When you ask what you should be asking of the OC, the answer is that it's dependent upon your end-game, so-to-speak. Is there also a collection account listed as a separate tradeline for this charge-off? Do you know what the applicable statute of limitations (SOL) is?
Also, slighly unrelated to this particular question, but definitely related to your rebuilding efforts overall-- Before you do anything, if you haven't done so already, please, please, please Opt-out with the credit bureaus and your creditors in good-standing. You can use the link in my sigline. Paying off old debts, and rebuilding your credit makes CAs come out of woodwork like nobody's business. opting-out curtails the CRAs ability to tip them off.
Friendly, Supportive & Respectful

To expand on LilMirth's SOL comment, you may owe a balance still. Even if sold at auction, the amount the car was sold for could have been less than your loan balance. If that's the case, a balance with monthly interest could be due now. The info merges in your post, OP, and you want to double and triple check to see if you have the $$$ to PIF before doing anything. If not, then wait until SOL expires before doing anything, lest you get sued.
