If the Wells Fargo account has not gone to collection yet, then that may be one to handle first, to prevent a collection account popping up for it, in addition to it. On the other hand, the goal would be to remove as many negative accounts as you can, so if you have small accounts in collections that you can get "pay for delete agreements" on, it may be better to spend your money there. Also you are concerned about getting a Wells Fargo Secured card, you do realize that other companines offer Secured credit cards don't you? Wells Fargo is not the only lender out there and it would be one for you to avoid as they will probably be quick to deny you for any requests with them.
