Arthur Weasley explains about the fake protective potions.[src]

Fake protective potions were sold to people under the claim that the potions are to protect the drinker from dark magic, but in truth were usually nothing more than a scam, such as a mixture of Bubotuber pus and gravy. Following the return of Lord Voldemort, a vast market appeared for protective potions, most of which were fake and did nothing, if not inflicting harm to the drinkers. Small-time crooks like Mundungus Fletcher sold them to the frightened hordes, who apparently did not notice its unhelpful (if not harmful) ingredients.[1]
