Exclusive: 22-year-old Pentagon arms dealer also marketed to civilians

ANOTHER STORY ABOUT THE LACK OF OVERSIGHT AT THE PENTAGON THAT WILL MAKE YOU MAD AS HELL! :evil: :evil: :cussing: :blob6:

The 22-year-old Florida man who allegedly provided old, substandard Chinese-manufactured ammunition to troops in Afghanistan as part of a nearly $300 million Pentagon contract also started a private company that specialized in selling foreign munitions to civilian gun enthusiasts, according to public documents, a RAW STORY investigation reveals.

Efraim E. Diveroli, 22, could face federal fraud charges after he tried to pass off the Chinese ammo as manufactured in Hungary. His company, AEY Inc., was banned from doing future business with the Defense Department after the New York Times revealed the shady circumstances surrounding a $298 million contract he received in January 2007.

In addition to the Miami-based AEY, Diveroli started a separate company, AmmoWorks, which advertised products such as Lithuanian GGG .308 Ammunition, MP-5 Magazines and an RPK40 magazine. A toll-free phone number listed on AmmoWorks Web site rings directly to AEY's Miami headquarters.

The company's Web site was taken down after RAW STORY began asking questions.

One of the biggest mysteries surrounding AEY remains how the company run by a few inexperienced 20-somethings managed to procure hundreds of millions of dollars worth of government contracts; the House Oversight Committee is planning an investigation. AEY's vice president was 25-year-old David Packouz, who is a licensed masseur. Another 25-year-old, Levi Meyer, briefly served as a general manager. Myer told the Times, "I'm not involved in that mess anymore."
