Get in contact with him then and question him?

I bought a POS 16gb on ebay for $20 to use in my blackberry. It came in a shady looking sandisk package, and says sandisk on the card too.

It actually is 16gb but it gets corrupted almost every time I plug it into my computer

Id out the SOB. Whether or not its a "real" 16gb....if it cant hold 16gib of data...he sold you a defective item. Out him publically where you bought it so other peeps wont fall for his douchebaggery. Or at least that is what I would do....but Im part Irish and part Scottish...so I have a good genetic history of practising the vendetta running in my veins! :)

ummm did you Safely Remove Device whenever you are done with it? Whenever you plug it in into the computer, does it say "Scan for fix (recommended)" ? If that's the case, backup your data, then Scan for fix... do this at your own risk of losing your data (thus backing them up first ... lol)
