He further stated that he is your business associates and you gave him the POWER OF ATTORNEY (POA) and legally authorized him to inherit all your properties, wealth and legacy. He therefore contacted our office recently base on your CONTRACT/INHERITANCE fund and payment valued [US$10,500,000.00] Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars, which we are about to transfer to you. But he requested that your fund [US$10.5m] should now be transfer and wire directly into his personal Bank Account provided to us instead of yours.
