Put a watermark on it! Only send them and/or let them view a copy that is watermarked. When you get paid, send them a copy with no watermark. Make sure that it is posted, or they have been informed that once they receive the copy that is not watermarked, there is no refund!

Slap a "watermark" on it!
Add some text to the logo.
Duplicate the text a few times. Be sure to place the text over more than just solid parts of the image.
Under TEXT COLORING select IMAGE Use an image that has lots of detail.
Under TEXT COLORING change the text opacity to something like 16% or 20%
export as a JPG.
It's pretty difficulty to remove the text, as depicted in photoshop.....
If you having someone who is going to pay for the logo they also need to understand, clearly, in writing, how sample logos are handled. Whatever you do, if this is the case, DO NOT provide a clear, unedited copy of the logo without the watermark until you are paid.

One can always use "clients name" instead of actual name as a deterrent.Cover image diagonally. Use a repetitive pattern over images as a watermark. One can misspell company name. A couple of deliberate errors raises the difficulty which need correcting in using a stolen item.
Consider using an unusual format such as SWF to show work. Adding a an swf character to the canvas wouldn't hurt either.
Unless they are running on a Mac platform
Separate names with a comma.
