1) Would you say that it is a safe bet that, as I contact the aforementioned corporations, they are consulting with the POA agent and sending duplicates of correspondence?
You don't say what the business of these corporations are, or how they are using your name. It is possible that the current POA is in fact the person running the corporation and he will know about your correspondence.
2)I know that there are 3 ways to revoke the POA in GA. I need to do the written way. Does it need to be witnessed and notarized? Do you have any advice about insulating the revocation from challengability? There is $ at stake.
Revocation need not be witnessed or notarized to be legal, but if you fear a challenge to the document then do so. Also, if it needs to be recorded to be effective regarding real estate
, notarization is usually a requirement. I don't know that there is any way to challenge a revocation of a POA. Once people know about the revocation, the POA becomes useless. It can no longer be relied upon by anyone. No one will deal with a POA knowing it has been revoked.
3) Does the revocation have to refer to the POA document in specificity? Do I need access to the POA document, or can I revoke it sight unseen?
It can be done without specific reference to the document but it is best to identify it as best you can with what you know about it. It's possible that over the years it might have been recorded. If so you can obtain a copy of it and refer to the specific recording numbers.
