I'm asking for my friend dealing with a customer who is upset that (my friend) did not give confirmation on the final proofs for a logo he printed on sports apparel. They met up and she was upset about the logo and claimed it was the wrong one...why would she send anything other than the one she wanted printed in the first place!?
Anyway, she wrote a check for the amount she thought was fair and took the product. That night her husband emailed and said, that he "stopped payment" on the check and they still have the product. He agrees that my friend did the job and should be paid, but wants to reach a compromise and will release funds when a compromise is reached. Didn't his wife reach a compromise when she wrote out the check and took the product? Is this legal? We are currently trying to contact a lawyer...but any advice would be great.( They have sent all emails to their lawyer).
There is no contract...Only emails and verbal and the check she wrote. State: Colorado

It is fraud now on their part because they received goods and attempted to deceive you. You should contact a magistrate judge about possible criminal charges if they are unwilling to settle this decently. You also have rights to a civil suit. Be sure to include legal fees on top of amounts owed.
