Fletcher then removed a $3,000 check from the day’s incoming mail; this check had been mailed in by a customer. Don Adams, in full payment of his account. Fleck makde no journal entry to record the $3,000 collection from Adams, but deposited the check in Jones Manuracturing’s bank account in place of the $3,000 over-the-counter cash receipts he had stolen.

In order to keep Adams from protesting when his month-end statement reached him, Fleck made a journal entry debiting Sales Returns and Allowances and crediting Accounts Receivable – Don Adams. Fleck prosted this entry to two general ledger accounts affected and to Adam’s account in the subsidiary ledger for accounts receivable
