Instagram model has police show up at her door after her followers cheated on her for ‘going on vacation’ – for posting a month-old throwback photo of a NSW tourism mecca
- Swimsuit model remembers the shock of two police officers who came home on Monday

A shocked Instagram model claims Sydney police confronted her at her door after she posted a throwback photo of herself on holiday.
Dominique Elissa, 25, is one of millions of Sydneysiders who have spent the past three weeks in lockdown due to a horror coronavirus outbreak.
Stay-at-home orders kept the bored Bondi swimsuit model very active on her Instagram, sharing posts and videos of her daily walks, fitness workouts and homemade treats with her 213,000 followers.
But sharing a sultry throwback shot last Thursday of herself posing on a beach in Jervis Bay, 200km away on NSW’s south coast, sparked concern among followers.
They assumed that Ms Ellissa was violating public health regulations by traveling to regional NSW during the lockdown and alerted police of the potential violation.

Ms. Elissa recalled meeting the surprise visitors who knocked on her door four days later in a TikTok video captioned “can’t believe this happened.”
“The strangest thing is that two police officers just barged into our house and had to check if I was here because they had received multiple complaints from people saying I’m in Jervis Bay,” Ms Elissa explained in the video.
“I posted a flashback a few days ago and I’m literally so shocked that people went so far as to call the police.”
Ms Elissa closed the video by settling the matter and ‘thanking’ those who had warned the authorities.
“I’m posting in Bondi every day as I walk, but hey, thanks for taking care of yourself,” she laughed.
“Honestly, they have nothing better to do,” she responded in disbelief to a comment on her video that the police bothered to check on her.

It’s unknown when the throwback photo was taken, showing the gorgeous swimsuit model in a bikini and shabby shoes posing on a beach.
“I don’t care what anyone says, crocodiles are a sphere,” Ms Elissa captioned the photo.
NSW police told Daily Mail Australia it could not provide details on the case.
“Police throughout the state are acting on information from the public about people who may be violating current health regulations,” it said.
Sydney and surrounding regions will remain on lockdown until at least July 30, as NSW registered 78 new cases on Tuesday.
