The search is on for a young Waikato man who's alleged to have defrauded several people when he failed to pay for goods delivered.

A police warrant is out for Andrew Colin George, 23, who is wanted in relation to multiple fraud matters.

Waikato police said he had defrauded a number of people, often through Trade Me.

"He has obtained items for sale with the premise he will pay following delivery, but payment is never made."

Police said the young man had connections to the Waikato and Rangitikai areas.

He was last seen early this morning in Morrinsville, but police believed he'd be heading back to the Bulls area.

Anyone with any information regarding his whereabouts is asked to contact the Morrinsville Police on (07) 8895071 or can be given anonymously via Crime stoppers on 0800 555111.
