Mohamad Fadel, 33, and Ayman Hajj Ali, 29, were charged in June in the same case.
The men are accused of using a special machine to skim customers' PIN, and then stealing the debit card — while handing back a look-alike to the customer. The bank account linked to the real debit card was then drained.
Montreal police believe there may have been more than 150 alleged victims.
