How to Book a Customer Stop Payment in QuickBooks

I've gone through the QuickBooks help, but I'm still not finding how to record the following:  Customer did a stop payment on a check we already received in, we will likely never be collecting on this invoice.
Probably the easiest way to do this is to issue a credit memo and then select that you’re refunding by check and don’t give it a check number.  This will reduce your income and create a check in your checking register that will match the stop payment amount.  You might also have a bank fee to enter, you can enter that as a check as well.
