Woman Catches Her Fiancée Cheating When She Spots Her Engagement Ring On Facebook

Being cheated on is bad enough. But what about when your boyfriend steals your engagement ring, wedding bands from a previous marriage, and then proposes to his other girlfriend that you didn’t know existed? 

A woman from Orange City, Florida called the cops on her boyfriend after he allegedly took the rings.

But how did she find out? Facebook.

Basically, she did some snooping and discovered her boyfriend’s new fiancée was wearing a ring that looked suspiciously like hers in a picture. 


The Volusia County Sheriff’s deputies issued an arrest for Joseph Davis, 48, who is now facing felony charges for grand theft. Davis has a record, including an active arrest warrant for a hit-and-run in Oregon. He has also been arrested for filing a false police report, domestic assault, possession of cocaine with intent to sell, and possession of a fake ID. 

The fiancée who received the stolen ring ended up also being victimized by Davis. Davis brought the new fiancee to his old fiancée’s house and claimed it was his. Then, he asked the new fiancée to move in with him—but he stole her laptop and jewelry and made haste. 

According to the sheriff’s office, both women met Davis on OKCupid where he used two different names: “Joe Brown” and “Marcus Brown.” However, the women were able to help officers track a relative down who identified Davis, and the woman who had her rings stolen was able to get them back.
