(2) Payment was refused by the drawee for lack of funds in the account of the drawer upon presentation within 30 days after delivery and the drawer or someone for him shall not have paid the payee the amount due thereon within ten days after receiving written notice mailed by certified or registered mail or statutory overnight delivery that payment was refused upon such instrument; or

(3) Notice mailed by certified or registered mail or statutory overnight delivery as provided in paragraph (2) of this subsection is returned undelivered to the sender when such notice was mailed within a reasonable time of dishonor to the address printed on the check or given by the drawer at the time of issuance of the check.

(b) The payee of any bad check written in full or partial payment for merchandise or for services rendered on merchandise, delivered at the time of the acceptance of the check, shall have a lien for the face amount of the check on the merchandise so delivered.
