To the outside world, Micheal seemed a great businessman. Climbing up the corporate ladder with ease. He worked for many big names like PayPal, Max Ernst & Young, Virgin Galactic, and others. But nightlife was by far his priority.
Michael Blum and Ties With L.A Asian Gangs
With a taste for prostitutes and expensive drugs, he became known among the leaders of Asian Boyz. The Asian Boyz, also known as ABZ, is a street gang based in Southern California. They appeared in the early 1970s. Made up of mainly Asian immigrants and their main focus was to protect their peers. Blum, being born in Hong Kong and knowing the culture quickly became close to the gang. They provide drugs and girls while Blum gives them access to confidential information on important people in Silicon Valley. The information is then used for blackmailing.
These adventures would not last long because Michael always dreamed of going to space. With enough money saved, Blum moved to New Mexico and bought a $200.000 ticket for SpaceShipTwo from Virgin Galactic. At this point, he changed his focus into Space and investment business, yet never cut ties with ABZ. Even around 2016 he was still closely working with the gang and using his companies for money laundering.
