The fact that payment of such check or draft, when presented in the usual course of business, shall be refused by such bank or banking association for lack of sufficient funds to the credit of the drawer or maker with which to pay the same, or because such drawer or maker has no account subject to such check or draft, shall be prima facie evidence that the same was made and delivered or drawn and delivered or uttered or given with the knowledge hereinabove mentioned. Bad check fee to be set by resolution may be assessed against returned checks as allowed by state law.
