If you are a fan of drama/crime films, then you might have watched War Dogs, the 2016 Todd Phillips directorial featuring Jonah Hill, Miles Teller and Bradley Cooper in the leads. Based on the true life story of two arms dealers, Efraim Diveroli, played by Jonah, and David Packouz, played by Teller, War Dogs became a critically successful and a box office average.
Efraim and David are among the world's renowned arms dealers, who ended up with a $300 million contract with the US Government to fetch ammunition to Afghanistan in 2007. Their insane financial success and over the top lifestyle was displayed in the movie War Dogs.
Let's discuss if Efrain is really enjoying an extravagant lifestyle with millions, as his on-screen character did in the movie.
Efraim Deveroli is the grandchild of one of the wealthiest property owners in Los Angles, Yoav Botach. Efraim could afford a luxurious lifestyle and millions in his belt, without having him to work. Born to a rich family obviously comes with its own benefits.
However, Efrain chose to build his own empire. After a family argument, Efraim told his father that he wanted to open a arms and ammunition business which would trade with the U.S. Government. Later Efriam convinced his father and AEY Inc. happened to be.

During the glorious days of his company, AEY Inc. earned millions. As of 2018, Efrain sits on a net worth of $15 million, attributed to his successful contracts and merchandise.

AEY Inc. is widely known for landing the $300 million U.S. Government contract, which made Efraim into a millionaire. Efraim and his partner David made 85 deliveries worth $66 million. Prior to the completion of the contract, AEY Inc. was charged with fraud and was eventually shut down.
Imagine if AEY Inc. hasn't had to group through this, Efraim would be way wealthier than he is today. After AEY Inc. was shut down, Efraim ran Ammoworks and continued selling arms. In August 2008, he pleaded guilty on one count of conspiracy and was imprisoned for four years on January 4, 2011.
Efraim was further sentenced for possessing a weapon while out on bond. Following his legal battles, Efraim lives a low key life, out of the prying eyes of media. Efrain's residence and his way of life out of AEY Inc. are still unknown.
Efraim has a Twitter page but hasn't been active since 2016.
