L BDXs-PAnBNT ON FORGED INDOR8BMENT-LI.uJILITY.
A bank that has paid a ch!lck on a forged indorsement is, not responsible therefor to the drawer where the person who committed the forgery was identified to the bank by one who believed him to be the/ayee, and was in fact the person to whom the drawer had delivered the check, an whom he believed to be the payee. The neglect of a drawer of 8 check, for more than a month after discovering that it had been paid upon a forged indorsement, to notify the bank that it will hold i' responsible therefor, releases the bank from liability, even though it had notice gf the forgery as soon as the drawer had.
