They are accused of withdrawing money from a bank account of a deceased man without the knowledge of the his family.
The two, Edward Omariba and Stanley Kanyugi, were charged with conspiracies to commit a felony contrary to section 393 of the penal code.
They are said to have committed the offence last week on November 3 at an unknown location alongside other who are still being tracked down by police.
They withdrew Sh1.1 million from Duncan Wathugi’s bank account.
The incident was reported by the Bank which noticed the illegal transaction and immediately notified Cybercrime and Banking fraud detectives.
Copies of witness statements and all exhibits were directed to be availed to the defence team so that they can prepare for the hearing.
The two who appeared before Senior Principal Magistrate Stella Atambo denied the charges and were released on Sh300,000 bond or a surety of similar amount.
