SIgning a power of attoprney that is notarized has to be in front of the the notary - so the ex-wife and the notary are guilty of fraud and larceny and you should report this to police and D.A. immediately. Also, your brother should sign a new paper revoking the the 1st document and get the revocation delivered to anyone who might by holding his assets.

All the best,
