If any claim not clearly consistent with the terms of any applicable authority on file with a bank is made to any deposit, safe deposit box, property held in safekeeping, security, obligation, or other property in the bank's possession or control, in whole or in part, by any person, including any depositor, individual, or group of individuals, whether or not authorized to draw on or exercise any right or control with respect to the property, the bank is not required to recognize the claim without one of the following:

(A) A court order, issued by a court of competent jurisdiction and served on the bank, enjoining or restraining the bank from taking any action with respect to the property or instructing the bank to pay some or all of the balance of the account, provide access to the safe deposit box, or deliver the property as provided in the order;

(B) A bond in the form and amount and with sureties satisfactory to the bank, indemnifying the bank against any liabilities, loss, and expenses it might incur because of its recognition of the claim or because of its refusal, due to the claim, to honor or recognize any right with respect to the property.
