Cardweb.com is a site on the World Wide Web that tracks credit card trends. The good news for MBNA was that the jump in its charge-offs was actually among the least in the top 10 card issuers as, collectively, they saw their lost loans jump 22% from last year, driven in large part from losses among the sub-prime issuers.
