Ira Ratner is a career scam artist having spent time in jail. He's lied about his military background, he abused his wife many times years ago. Florida police have a rap sheet on him a mile long. NO ONE SHOULD BE SURPRISED!!!

I am currently being prosecuted by Ira Ratner, and am thinking of counter suing. It is time this guy learns a lesson. If anyone can send me a character letter on Ira and a paragraph of your experiences with him my email is chrisschine@yahoo.com.

Well, Patti - have you had a chance to take a look at his picture?? He is a character, a liar and a cheat! Unfortunately, there are many people in Florida with the same attributes.:-(

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!

Not sure what you mean in your post by a "faker." I just recently deleted his picture from my computer after no one from this string responded! 8-(
The Florida police did not offer any support.
