A collection slip is an instrument for paying for a product or a service provided by a supplier. Using a collection slip, the issuer of the document, referred to as the “Assignor”, will receive in their account the amount referring to that product or service.
When paying a collection slip, always check that the data of the “Assignor” is the person that sold you the product or service. Always check whether the corporate logo printed in the body of the collection slip corresponds to the bank code * shown at the beginning of the numerical identification field.
Beware of bar codes with defects showing excessive space between the bars or any other alterations that make it impossible for the reader to recognize. Whenever you are in doubt as to the veracity of a collection slip, contact the supplier who issued it directly. Avoid reprinting collection slips on sites other than those of the bank issuing them. Avoid negotiating discounts on slips with strangers or those purporting to be employees of the banks or the collection companies.
*The bank code appears in the first three positions of the code in the numerical identification field. The bank corresponding to that code can be obtained on the FEBRABAN site at the “Busca Banco” (Bank Search) address.
