If a check or other bill of exchange is drawn by a fiduciary or in the name of his or her principal by a fiduciary empowered to draw the instrument in the name of his or her principal, payable to the fiduciary personally, or payable to a third person and by him or her transferred to the fiduciary, and is thereafter transferred by the fiduciary, whether in payment of a personal debt of the fiduciary or otherwise, the transferee is not bound to inquire whether the fiduciary is committing a breach of his or her obligation as fiduciary in transferring the instrument, and is not chargeable with notice that the fiduciary is committing a breach of his or her obligation as fiduciary, unless he or she takes the instrument with actual knowledge of the breach, or with knowledge of any facts that his or her action in taking the instrument amounts to bad faith.
