I was approached by Hiram Ryan of Ryan Aerospace about a Private Placement Program through one of my financial planners and a business associate.  Mr. Ryan was the supposed "Platform Facilitator" for the group I was to enter the program through.  We signed a J/V agreement and I put $250,000 into the program with Ben Leazer of Leazer Financial Services LLC, a supposed "Platform Manager" for Deutsche Bank.  

After personally speaking to Ben Leazer and him assuring me that the program was legitimate and that if I decided to pull out and want my money back it wouldn't be a problem, I wired Mr. Leazer the $250,000 to his business account in North Carolina.  

Weeks and months went by and I had not received any returns on the money I invested.  I have called Ben Leazer several times and all I get is excuses on why it has not closed yet, but it will at some point.  After waiting over a year, I requested my money back.  Mr. Leazer said the money is tied up in the deal and he can't return it now until the deal funds.  Of course, this has not happened.  

Coming up on two years now, he is nowhere to be found.  I have called his number and it is disconnected.  My associates and I have called Hiram Ryan with Ryan Aerospace and he accepts no responsibility and makes excuses saying he hasn't spoken to Ben Leazer.  Mr. Ryan says he will pay me back the $250,000 because he signed the J/V agreement with me, but he hasn't done that either.

I would suggest to anyone looking to do a deal with Ben Leazer of Leazer Financial Services out of Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina or Hiram Ryan of Ryan Aerospace out of Austin, TX, you stay away from doing so.  They both are looking for money to do certain "Deals" or "Acquisitions", but neither take responsibility for the money you put up.  I will continue to expose these guys until the $250,000 has been returned to me.

A fellow victim of hiram Ryan's with some other information for you all....

AUTHOR: Mary - (United States)

POSTED: Sunday, November 12, 2017

  I too was a victim of Mr Hiram Ryan from 2003 to 2007 as his then girlfriend/fiancé. I'm ashamed to say that, in addition to my own personal loss of $60,000 to this con artist, I was an unwitting witness to the cons that he was executing on others. At the time, I truly believed in him and trusted that Ryan Aerospace was a legitimate business venture. For personal reasons I broke it off with Hiram in 2007 but subsequently came to believe that all of the folks that he met on line and courted over the phone were being conned just as I had been. Hiram is not a defrocked Priest.... he never WAS a priest! He went to the seminary briefly as a teenager but his father took him out. (This is the same father who was NOT the famous boxer Jackie Ryan but some guy with the last name Hand. ) When I was first dating Hiram, he told me stories about his days as a priest and they were the same stories as the priest in The Thornbirds. Being one of my favorite novels, I thought this was so romantic but suspiciously coincidental. His bull sh_t knows no bounds. While Hiram briefly attended Queensland University, he DID NOT graduate with a bachelors let alone a masters degree. He can talk a mighty good line but he is almost completely illiterate. If you've ever seen anything he has attempted to write (key word attempted) you'd know I'm telling the truth. I used to do the writing for him as he is well aware of his deficiency. And finally, Hiram is in this country illegally as his temporary Visa ran out in the early 2000's. I'm sorry I never did anything to have this jerk arrested or deported. I am so sorry to others who have been subsequently ripped off and hurt by this jerk. I'm especially sorry that some poor woman named Pam married him before realizing who he was. In my defense, after unceremoniously dumping him, I never wanted anything to do with him ever again so deleted all existence of him from my life and never looked back. That being said, if anyone wants me to testify or otherwise help in bringing him to justice, please contact me through this site.

There's a lot more than Leazer Financial

AUTHOR: It's even worse! - (USA)

POSTED: Tuesday, December 15, 2015

Leazer Financial pales in comparison to what Hiram Ryan took from other investors.

He contends that he gave the last set of investor funds to a convicted felon.

Watch out when it comes to this guy.

Retraction Of HIram Ryan Statement

AUTHOR: Century Global - (USA)

POSTED: Thursday, October 08, 2015

We wish to totally retract our positive rebuttal of Hiram Ryan and Ryan Aeropspace as we have no proof that Mr Ryan did or did not take funds from this indiviual. He claiimed to us that all funds went to Leazer Financial; however, we were never given proof that Mr Ryan was just "third" party referral to Leazer. Unfrotunately, we jsut don't know but feel very badly for the gentlement who was induced to provide the $250,000 funds that he was defrauded from.

Our conversations in this regard were just that ... conversations. No proof was ever supplied by Hiram Ryan so we cannot stand behind our statement of Mr Ryan's involvment with Leazer Financial or this individual who was defruaded.

Not The Whole Story

AUTHOR: Century Global - (USA)

POSTED: Sunday, September 06, 2015

After reading the report and speaking directly with Mr Ryan on several occasions regarding this matter, we're quite comfortable that Mr Ryan was asked to make a referral to this individual as Mr Ryan of Ryan Aerospace could not accomodate this individuals needs. Leazer Financial it is proven took possesion of the funds and we understand that Mr Ryan made the investor aware that they would need to do their own due diligence on Leazer Financial. Our group has known and worked with Ryan Aerospace for about a year and we find him to be quite forward with us in our dealings. We did our own search of Leazer Financial in North Carolina and it appears that they have closed shop after this unfortunate incident.

We're hearing that this guy may have taken another couple hundred thousand from a few other investors back in November 2014. This time into his own account.


Anyone hearing the same thing?
