Récépissé Vs. Reçu

    They are very close, but I understand "récépissé" as a general receipt (could be to acknowledge receiving goods, work done, etc.) whereas "reçu" is a receipt solely for money. What do 'locals' think?

    I agree with Teafrog. You get a récépissé at the police station, for example, when you make a statement. You get a reçu when you hand over money.
