Charged off student loans still in credit report after being paid in full

Dear Experian, I have three student loans from about 12 years ago that where charged off. I paid them off in full two years ago, yet they are still reporting on my credit report. They are being reported as paid in full; however, next to that it lists a loan amount and still shows a balance. The loan amount would be the original amount borrowed, but there must be a mistake since it shows a balance even though it states paid in full. Is this affecting my credit score? Should I get a letter stating paid in full from the lender and send it in to you? - MKD

Voluntary repossession would have seriously damaged credit scores

Dear Experian, I am trying to trade-in my car; however, I am upside down on my current car loan. If I trade it, my payments will be really high. The salesperson is trying to convince me to do a voluntary repossession on my current vehicle. She said that it would not be a big hit on my credit and my new car payment will then be lower. I told her that was something that I really had to think about and research. I don't know much about what she was talking about, and I did not want to make an impulse decision. - NTN
