Now: Efraim Diveroli & David Packouz’s Net Worth Fluctuations And More
When Jonah Hill agrees to play you in your biopic, it’s one of the most telling signs that your life narrative is one epic tale worth millions of dollars.
Jonah Hill portrays American former arms dealer Efraim Diveroli in 2016’s smash crime biopic Wardogs, with fellow American actor Miles Teller, who portrayed American former arms dealer David Packouz. The plot centered on two well-known arms dealers who not only pulled off a multi-million dollar heist, but also on their emotional lives depictions of brotherhood, devotion, love, narcotics, cannabis, and other unwholesome entanglements of life.
Efraim is the founder of the famed AEY Incorporate, which he co-founded with David. He had become an international arms trader at a young age. By the age of 21, he had already earned a $300 million Pentagon contract.
But where has he gone since then? Are the two former crime partners as close as they once were?
Efraim Diveroli Became Famous Arms Dealer ‘Arms WunderKind’ at a Young Age!
It’s difficult to comprehend how Efraim, who was born and nurtured in an Orthodox Jewish family, rose to become one of the world’s most notorious naughty arms dealers.
Efraim Diveroli was born on December 20, 1985, in Miami Beach, Florida, to Ateret and Michael Diveroli.
It was his father, Michael, to whom he confessed his plans to launch a business specializing in arms and ammunition trading as well as defense contracts with the US government. The same father sold him a tiny printing company called AEY, Inc., which was named after his and his brothers’ initials.
He earned a well-known figure in the arms dealing profession at a young age, owing to his natural skill at selling machinery. He was dubbed the “Arms Wunderkind.” With the increasing pressure from his career, it was only natural that he became a drug abuser as well.
Efraim Diveroli’s Net Worth Has Increased And Declined!
Efraim’s narrative seemed typical as a youngster working from his one-room Miami apartment, but the twist comes after learning what kind of labor he was doing. It’s hard to imagine, but he was earning modest contracts as a heavy armaments trader through the federal website fbo.gov (FedBizOpps).
He soon rode a ship on the ocean made of millions of dollars, $300 million to be exact, like drops of water making the sea. The Pentagon awarded his company, AEY Inc., a contract worth approximately $300 million to supply weaponry and explosives to NATO soldiers in Afghanistan. Furthermore, the duo’s company’s net worth was estimated to be around $200 million at the time.
However, while serving his country, he began engaging with crime lords and corrupted diplomats, leading to a disastrous turn of events.
The US government has suspended AEY, Inc. on March 27, 2008, for violating the terms of its contract. Five months later, on January 4, 2011, he pled guilty to one count of conspiracy and was sentenced to four years in jail.
He was also found guilty of possessing a firearm, adding to his long list of crimes. However, his sentence was reduced as a result of his aid in the investigation of the crime. Meanwhile, David Packouz, his previous partner, was placed under house arrest for seven months.
Was the millions of dollars in his bank account, however, worth the time he spent in prison? Does he have any remorse for his unlawful behavior? Is he willing to modify his ways now that he’s out of prison? Don’t worry if you’re wondering what David and Efraim are up to now.
What are Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz doing these days?
Efraim is currently a busy father of a young girl with his former spouse, while Packouz is a musician. He runs BeatBuddy, a company that sells an electronic drum machines.
Meanwhile, Diveroli recently filed a lawsuit against their biographical movie producers, alleging that they based the screenplay on parts of his biography without his permission, seeking damages as well as a cut of the earnings.

Apart from that, he is also defending himself against lawsuits filed by Packouz and their former collaborator, Ralph Merrill, alleging that Diveroli owes them income from a government contract he won in 2007.
Obviously, the massive wealth they amassed from the heist was expected to be shared with his associates, but did he?
Given how things are now heating up in their life, a sequel to WarDogs may not be far off the drawing board!
