Both defendants pleaded not guilty to all the allegations against them which totalled around £2,500 of fraud using Brook Giles' grandfather's bank account.
When they appeared before South Somerset and Mendip Magistrates for a second time a pre trial review was conducted and the case was adjourned for a trial to take place on July 8.
Until then they were both released on bail with the condition that they must not contact Anthony Upshall directly or indirectly.
