Hi.

Take a look at this. The ebay seller in question either does not know these are fake or is actively selling counterfeit items.
The cards are actually modified 256Mbyte, with firmware which responds with correct size when interrogated.

Nearly lost a lot of data thanks to this , luckily I keep backups.

Also I purchased a fake Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo and a Sandisk 2GB Transflash, both of which are counterfeit and do not work as advertised.

Why are you buying SD cards off eBay in the first place? You can get 1gb cards for like $8 on Newegg.
