What to do about a possible scam?

Question Details:

I received a insurance settlement for a car accident lawsuit as I was the passenger. I went through a friends mom's attorney and went through physical therapy. I went to friend's mom to pick up my settlement check and she wouldn't hand over the check unless I promised to give her son $500 with no just cause or with no reason for me to. She didn't do anything for me that would warrant her or her son to receive any compensation. I went too pick up check and she made write a document saying I (me) promise to pay (friend's mom)
