The NSW government and police today warned internet buyers about serial fraudsters preying on customers using the Australian site of the world's most popular online auction service.

NSW Police Minister John Watkins said today the police fraud squad had activated two strike forces to track organised crime on internet site eBay Australia.

"Customers need to be aware that the vast majority of transactions on ebay are legitimate and are completed satisfactorily," Watkins told reporters.

"(But) the warning is out there for people who are using ebay in NSW to be aware that it is also open to fraudsters and rip-off merchants."

More than a million Australians have signed up to eBay and it is expected to increase in popularity.
