The actions will depend on the level of understanding you have with the customer. You need to engage client to get an understanding of initial product scope agreed. Things which are evolved and looks entirely outside of decided scope require a negotiation with the customer.

The Agile way of doing is that we accept that estimations are meant to be incorrect as we have the limitation of knowing things in advance. If the budget is fixed, the time is fixed, and if a promised is made to deliver all the functionalities? This is called "iron triangle," no variables, only solid-framed limitations... Get prepared to negotiate! It is what agile tries to change!

The detailing of Product Backlog depends on the level of trust in general. Creating an exhaustive, fully detailed backlog is not helping much but may be required. Do note this decision has to be taken outside of Scrum and may need based on the level of trust you have with the client.
