The story mainly revolved around the two notorious arms dealer who not only pulled off a major multi-million dollar worth heist but also their emotional life depiction about brotherhood, loyalty, love, drugs, weed, and more wholesome entanglements of life.
With a reliant comrade in David, Efraim is the founder of the infamous AEY Incorporate. At a very young age, he had become an international arms dealer. By 21, he had already landed a $300 million contract with the Pentagon.

But where is he now? Are the two former partners in crime close as they once were before?
At Young Age, Efraim Diveroli Became Famous Arms Dealer 'Arms WunderKind'!
It’s unfathomable how Efraim, who was born and raised to an Orthodox Jewish Family, went on to become one of the youngest and renowned mischievous arms dealers of all time.
Born on 20 December 1985, in Miami Beach, Florida, Efraim was the son of Ateret and Michael Diveroli.
It was his father, Michael, to him he confided about how he wanted to start a business focused in arms, ammunition trading, and defense contracts with the U.S. Government. The same father was the one who sold him a small printing business named after the first initials of him and his siblings, AEY, Inc.
Quickly, at a young age, embodying his real talent for dealing machinery, he became a famous name in the arms dealing industry, labeled as the "Arms Wunderkind.” It was inevitable and natural that with the mounting pressure from the job, he found himself a drug abuser as well.
The Up & Down Story Of Efraim Diveroli's Net Worth!
As a teenager working from his one-room apartment in Miami, Efraim’s story seemed like an ordinary one, but the twist comes after knowing the kind of work he was doing. It might be hard to believe, but he was getting in small contracts through government website fbo.gov (FedBizOpps) as a heavy arms trader.
Like drops of water making the sea, he soon rode a ship in the ocean made of millions of dollars, $300 million to be precise. His company AEY Inc. was awarded an approximate $300 million contract by the Pentagon asking them to supply arms and munitions to the allied forces in Afghanistan. Moreover, the duo's company's net worth at that time was thought to be around $200 million.
However, amidst serving his country, he started dealing with crime lords, corrupted diplomats; taking a wrong turn for the worst.
By 27 March 2008, AEY, Inc. got suspended by the U.S government for infringing the terms of their contract. Ultimately, five months later, he pleaded guilty on one count of conspiracy and was sentenced to prison for four years on 4 January 2011.
Adding to his list of convictions, he was also convicted for possession of a firearm. But due to his assistance in the investigation of the offense, he had his sentence reduced. Meanwhile his former partner, David Packouz served seven months of house arrest.
But was the millions of net worth, worth the jail time for him? Does he regret his criminal offense at all? Now that he is out of prison, is he willing to change his direction? If you're wondering what David and Efraim are doing now, don't sweat it!
What Are Efraim Diveroli & David Packouz Upto Now
As of now, Efraim is a busy father of a little girl who he fathered with his former partner, while Packouz is a musician. He owns his own company, BeatBuddy, which sells an electronic drum machine.
Meanwhile, Diveroli, seeking damages as well as a cut from the profits of the film, recently filed a lawsuit against their biopic movie producers, claiming they based the screenplay off parts of his memoir without the rights.

Apart from that, he is also currently fighting lawsuits from Packouz and their former associate, Ralph Merrill; they claim that Diveroli still owes them profits from their 2007 government contract. The colossal net worth they generated from that heist was meant to be shared with his affiliates obviously, but did he?
From the way things are heating up in their lives right now, the notion of a sequel to WarDogs might not be far from reality!
