Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

It is legal to wire money to someone's bank account without the person's prior consent provided that you are not wiring the funds for any illegal purpose. You can wire the funds to make a gift, the receiving party has the option to accept or reject the gift

I would be glad to continue the conversation and respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.
