Sec. 15.

(a) Whenever an installment sale contract is lawfully sold, transferred or assigned to a person who is licensed as a sales finance company, pursuant to the provisions of this act, such new holder shall furnish to the buyer in such contract a written notice of such sale, transfer or assignment, excepting when assignment is made only to secure a bona fide commercial loan or pursuant to a bulk sale of installment sale contracts. Such notices shall set forth the name and address of the new holder and shall notify the buyer of the name and address of the person authorized to receive future payments on such contract. If such notice has not been given, any payment or tender of payment made to and any service of notice on the last known holder by the buyer shall be binding upon any subsequent holder.
