The president of The Parkview Company has recently become concerned

The president of The Parkview Company has recently become concerned that the bookkeeper has embezzled cash from the company. She asks you, confidentially, to look over the bank reconciliation that the bookkeeper has prepared to see if you discover any discrepancies between the books and the bank statement. She provides you with the Cash account from the general ledger, the bank statement, and the bank reconciliation as of December 31. You learn from the November bank reconciliation that the following checks were outstanding on November 30: No. 1560 for $184, No. 1880 for $549, No. 1882 for $122, and No. 1883 for $467. There was one deposit in transit on November 30 for $1,275. An examination of the actual deposit slips revealed no bank errors. Assume the cash deposit of $2,375 on December 24 is the correct amount. The January bank statement showed that a $670 deposit cleared the bank on January 2.
