UK : About 12,000 fake STI kits seized in UK over past four years

The Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has identified around 2,000 sexually transmitted infections (STI) test kits available to buy online since last October. The fake test devices for HIV and other diseases can show negative results when the person is positive, resulting in an individual believing they are infection-free and unknowingly spreading an infection to others.
Many people bought the products online in order to test for infections such as syphilis and gonorrhea to avoid the embarrassment of buying them in a pharmacy.
