The fact is that this is a credit to SQ's customer service. SQ would be well justified in simply doing nothing when it received the altered form back. OP's friend would never receive compensation, SQ would never pay it and no court would ever fault SQ. Giving the pax a second chance to do the right thing is a smart move.
