without presentation to the depositor at the time of deposit.

2. No banking institution shall assert, claim or exercise any right of
set off against any other deposit account held by such banking
institution unless, prior to or on the same business day of such action,
notice of the set off together with the reasons for the set off are
mailed to the depositor.

3. Failure to provide the notice required by this section shall not be
deemed to affect the validity of the right of set off.
