I've purposely exaggerated for the sake of the worst-case-scenario, hopefully you get the idea.
Few things you can do to protect yourself here - top & tail the mp3, literally cut off the intro & outro, unless it's needed to track the new bass.
Remove elements from the song before sending, bass player doesn't need those cool delays on the backing vox to do their job.
Flat refuse to send anyone any files til you've been paid for the work you've already done.
Unfortunately, these situations generally mean you're going to make the client annoyed unless you do what they want. Tough one.
Hope I've been helpful, or at least easy to ignore
