I had a repo back in 2008with wells fargo financial. I owed 16,000 vehicle was worth 13,000. as of today I have a CO from them for over 23,000 and they refresh it every month and its killing my fico score... any suggestions on how much I should offer them for a PFD... also anyone else have similar accounts with them and have any success getting the item removed???

You say it was a repo and you owed 16000.  So the vehicle should have been sold and you would have been responsible for the remaining balance.  It doesn't matter how much it was worth, what matters is what it was sold for.   Now that it's over 23000, I would have to assume that they are holding you responsible for the entire amount owed, plus interest.  I would definitely fight that.  Are they actively collecting? What's the SOL of your state.  You need to be careful when poking the sleeping bear if it's within SOL.

Repossession Dispute

Sometimes when your car is repossessed the original creditor sells the car for less than the amount remaining on your loan.  When this happens they can come after you for the balance, called the deficiency. This letter is for the purpose of disputing collection activities on a deficiency from a motor vehicle repossession.  It may be used AFTER 2 years from the date of the repo sale, providing there has been no filed claim for a judgment.  It should not be used if you have been sued, or if the repossession is less than 2 years ago.  The following site has all the state's repo laws listed:  http://www.nfa.org/Site_search.html
