Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Instances of SCP-XXXX are to be placed in the exact centre of a large lock-and-key safe of at least 2m x 2m x 2m in dimensions. The lock, safe, and anything contained within the safe must be made of non-conductive materials to prevent spread of anomalous effects.

No conductive materials or surfaces/devices possessing numbers on or within them are allowed inside rooms containing SCP-XXXX instances, with the exception of authorized testing. Testing requires permission from two Level 4 personnel and must take place within a fully insulated concrete room as to prevent spread of anomalous effects.

Supervision of the instances will nullify their anomalous properties, however constant surveillance has been deemed unnecessary for containment by current understanding of the objects. Observation by live video feed will also nullify the effects, however observation by delayed video feed will not. Blinking constitutes a break in observation, allowing anomalous properties to briefly manifest.

Agents have been planted in the Forgotten Oasis factory in ███████, United Kingdom and in the █████ store in █████████, United Kingdom in order to identify and prevent the distribution of new SCP-XXXX instances. New instances are to be catalogued SCP-XXXX-#.

Description: SCP-XXXX is the designation given to multiple Super Scent™ soap bars produced by the Forgotten Oasis Company, situated in ██████, United Kingdom. So far three four1 instances have been recovered, all from the █████ store in █████████, United Kingdom. All three instances have demonstrated distinct info-altering properties with similar features. When placed on a surface with electrically conductive contact to a surface with a number present on it, said number will be altered according to the instance's properties. Contact can be through multiple conductive surfaces, and the effect can jump small distances through non-conductive materials (including the air) to other conductive surfaces or number-holding surfaces. Numbers contained within digital devices are also affected, however the effect cannot spread to other devices via wireless communication. Numbers can be affected multiple times with varying frequency between alterations.

SCP-XXXX-1, neutralized, was a cherry scented dark red bar of soap, with the image of a cherry carved into either side. Numbers affected by this instance reduced by value of 1.000 every time the effect manifested.

SCP-XXXX-2, neutralized, was a vanilla scented pale yellow bar of soap, with the image of a stylised ice cream cone carved into either side. Numbers affected by this instance increased in a random value every time the effect manifested, however the value of the number never exceeds the amount of digits present. Once the maximum value of a given set of digits has been reached (for example, a three-digit number with two decimal places has a maximum value of 999.99) the number will continue to increase as though a new digit has been added to the front of the number but without a visible indicator that this has actually occurred, giving the impression of a sudden drop in value. (For example, 999.99 plus 56 would appear as 055.99).

SCP-XXXX-3 is a raspberry scented blue bar of soap, with the image of a raspberry carved into either side. Numbers affected by this instance double in value every time the effect manifests.

Addendum SCP-XXXX/A:
Objects were recovered 10/12/20██ after an I.T. Expert was called to the █████ store multiple times to solve computer issues with fluctuating prices in the system. Expert was replaced with Foundation plant after telling his colleagues of the computer's unusual behaviour. Brief investigation lead to the discovery that physical numbers were also affected. Foundation called and store closed while anomalous objects identified and recovered. Cover story published in local newspapers blaming rat infestation for temporary store closure.

Addendum SCP-XXXX/B:
Note: Unfortunately, SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 have been destroyed in testing. However, we have learned a lot of valuable information by doing so. For example: washing yourself using an SCP-XXXX instance will not destroy its anomalous effects, however cutting it into two parts will. These objects also have no affect on the human brain or artificial intelligences, however they do affect integers stored as strings within machine code. Scans and dissections of SCP-XXXX-1 and SCP-XXXX-2 have revealed no anomalous structure. Despite these learnings, we still cannot conclude how these anomalous properties formed. - Lead Researcher Dr. Graddige

Addendum SCP-XXXX/C:
Fourth object, designated SCP-XXXX-4, recovered from █████████, United Kingdom. Object was in possession of a Mr. A███████ whom had been arrested for fraud after using SCP-XXXX-4 to alter the funds in his bank account. Security camera footage obtained from █████ store confirms SCP-XXXX-4's point of origin consistent with other SCP-XXXX objects.

Permission to launch wide-scale recovery of Super Scent™ soap bars purchased from █████ store pending O5 Approval.

Note: If these things spread far enough we could see some wide-scale info damages. We need to recover all of these objects, I don't care how redundant or relatively inert they may seem. If one of these objects ends up inside a stock exchange or major bank it might cause entire economies to crash. - Lead Researcher Dr. Graddige
