Yes it's considered fraud,and the cheque writer could be declared "interdit bancaire" because of it, when you present the cheque to your bank and it is refused.
I dont know what recourse you might have to get your money, when I had a similar problem the person agreed to pay me in cash over a period of time, but it was only a relatively small sum .
As I hadnt "porté plainte" he wasnt declared interdit bancaire
