Spanish term or phrase: colet
Argentine Spanish: An institution is trying to collect on a bill and the phrase is "pondrán un colet".
Does it mean "they will put it out for collection"? (give it to a collection agency)
Thank you ahead of time.

Explanation:
I mean, in your other question they had written cAunter instead of cOunter, right?

The only meaning of "colet" in Argentina/Uruguay is a chocolate milk. And that wouldn't fit here, would it?

I think you are right, and the context elsewhere would support it.
I just wanted to be sure it didn't have some other meaning.
Thank you.
