About Us

Fun Fact:  Grey Ghost started off in 2008 as a licensed private investigator agency named ‘Amazons Protective Services’. The reason why that name was chosen was because the agency had an all-female bodyguard unit named ‘The Amazons’, modeled after Gaddafi’s guards. The Amazon unit was quickly phased out as the agency moved away from bodyguard work and towards private investigations. The numerous calls the agency received from dissatisfied Amazon Marketplace customers asking to return their products were the final straw…and thus, the name was changed to ‘Grey Ghost’. The name Grey Ghost is the nickname for the Weimaraner breed of dogs, who are known for their keen intelligence and excellent hunting abilities. Since our Weimaraners assist with surveillance sometimes, we figured we’d give them the credit they deserve.

Grey Ghost Investigations

Who We Are

Grey Ghost was founded by Ana-Maria Ionita, a former Probation Officer who worked for the Florida Department of Corrections. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Psychology. Ana is a life-long student of human behavior and truly enjoys solving mysteries. Her own life experiences, especially those dealing with dishonest people, have led her to private investigations. Investigations became not just a passion for her, but a service that she could offer to others, so they could also benefit from knowing the truth and making informed decisions. Ana has extensive training and more than 20 years experience in all matters concerning the Criminal Justice system. She specializes in surveillance techniques and other specialized investigative techniques. Over the years, Ana has put together a team of highly trained and educated private investigators, who feel as passionate about conducting investigations as she does. She supervises the investigations team to ensure that all rules and regulations are adhered to and that all investigation cases are performed as thoroughly, accurately and economically as possible. All Grey Ghost private investigators hold an active State of FL PI license and they have at least 2 years of experience in surveillance techniques. The agency is also licensed with the State of FL, holds active insurance and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau.

What Type of Investigations We do 

We are known as the ‘Surveillance Experts of South Florida’ because we specialize in surveillance cases. While we do offer other services, such as background checks, our main focus is on surveillance investigations. Being that surveillance is an art that takes many years to master, we have chosen to focus on this service in order to perfect our skills and earn the title of ‘experts’. Surveillance is required for most types of cases, such as infidelity, child custody, business non-compete agreement violations, etc. Each type of case is unique and requires a specialized surveillance plan, based on its specific circumstances and location. Our private investigators specialize in designing effective plans for our clients, in order to ensure the success of the investigation.
