Attention:Sir I am confused again.Who is Kenneth F.Slaughter, your brother. Address:13742 Judy Anne Lane, Santa Ana, CA 92705. He just emailed me your power of attorney stating that your total entitlement shall be wired to his account as your next of kin. He made it clear to us that you are dead and have left all your Title on his care as your next of kin. He told me that this funds will help him take care of your children. Why...Why did you do this without my knowledge. I wish you were alive..He gave me his bank account in California and new York to split this funds for him. He is here with the $150 fee involved. I was surprised why you could not pay your transfer charge for the telex of your $4.5m wire to your account. It is not possible for me to release your Title to Kenneth without hearing from you.. I am crying...after you have suffered for years to get this funds,,,loose it at the last minute...God forbid. Please, call me or email if you are alive...Urgent before it is late. Note if you fail to update us within 24hrs we refer your case to the INTERPOL DEPARTMENT AS INSTRUCTED BY THE FBI DIRECTOR. Remember Contact Person's Name is Mr Chris Agwu Thanks Yours Faithfully, William Ben
