I'm so sorry. Your best bet is to avoid him at all costs. He is a very charming bastard, and that's the best thing anyone has ever had to say about him.

to all who have had the honor of meeting this liar, scam artist, if in his company call the police and have him arrested.He has a long criminal history, all you need to do is look it up ira m ratner. he is 67 yrs old with alot of medical issues. he also has a current wife who he screw and left pennyless. he also has a family in atlanta georgia that want nothing to do with him. He is originally from bridgeport, ct and his birthday is 11//9/45. he should have been an abortion. he has a very bad history, he is one dude that truly belongs in jail.

Have reason to believe that this man is currently running a scam on an elderly woman he is staying with in Tampa, FL. With her mental decline she believes he has good intentions. Given his criminal background her family has contacted the police. If all goes well, she will be safe from harm & he will be in jail soon!
Ira M. Ratner has screwed hundreds of women out of their possessions, out of money, and is a liar and a cheat. That woman he trying to take advantage of belongs in jail, whatever relationship she is to you have him arrested immediately. I have proof that Ira M. Ratner is a theif, and he has stolen thousands and thousands of dollars from me. I also have an old picture he is 6'3, graying hair, about 250 lbs. has many heart issues, and has severe leg problems among other issues. You are correct he does in fact have a rap-sheet a mile long beginning in Bridge port conn., Florida and many other places like YonKers N. Y. Aperently he was accused of being a child molester and police were called numerous times. He is now looking to scam Widows in florida and all over, trying to drain them of their life savings. So please do not have any contact with this individual. he is a liar a scammer and a their with no conscience. He has done these things to his prior family including his ex wife. His prior family want nothing to do with him and he is still currently married. Have no remorse be aware and have him arrested, he puts nothing under his name. If you can send a picture of him to anonomys I can verify if it is the same person or not. He is no stranger to the criminal legal system and has managed avoiding jail time. Please make this world a better place for lonly , widowed, and vulnerable women he prays on. Please do not allow him to get away with this, In his back ground there are people who will verify the damages he has caused in various states, they can be contacted. Again make this world a better place and have him arrested for his scamming ways. He has a long history of it. Waiting for your response.

Wow, he is still around. This guy is a psychopath and revels in ripping off people and companies. I could tell many, many stories about him. He is ruthless, and will set you up over several weeks then take you down hard. DO NOT GET INVOLVED WITH THIS MAN! Do not sign any papers, do not join in a corporation or let him on your board. If you let him on your board he will take your company. He tried to take me down but I was able to fight him off.

He's no longer staying with the elderly woman in Tampa, FL. Not clear if he got any money out of her, but he did show her guns & knives he kept in the trunk of his car. This man is dangerous & has a lengthy criminal record. Heed the warnings of others on this site & steer clear of him. If he checks the internet he no doubt knows that people are on to him. The family of a wealthy widow he targeted hired a private investigator to gather evidence which will finally put him in jail for a long time. There's a photo of him on his Facebook profile. He's bad news!

I think I may have met this man, but not sure if he is the same one. Does he claim to be a former PGA golfer and also taught junior league golf? Does he live in Riverview, FL? Retired colonel in the Army?
