Description: SCP-XXXX is an IPhone8 Apple brand phone. when switched on, the wallpaper and lock screen picture depicts a bitcoin1 symbol.The settings can be adjusted to meet brightness, font size etc, but the wallpaper can however not been changed, with an 'ERROR' message appearing. The contacts can only call one number (1800-███-███) and attempting to call or add other numbers resulted in a 'ERROR' message. Attempts to call the number on a non-anomalous IPhone 8 resulted in the phone displaying an 'ERROR' message.

When calling the number, the call will connect to a males voice, with a South-African accent. No failure to be connected has been recorded. The person (henceforth designated SCP-XXXX-1), will kindly ask the caller for their bitcoin account. If the caller does not have a bitcoin wallet, SCP-XXXX-1 will thank the caller, and hang up. If the caller does have a bitcoin wallet, SCP-XXXX-1 will ask them for the amount of bitcoin they want to deposit into their account. The caller can then tell SCP-XXXX-1 the desired amount. SCP-XXXX-1 will then hang up, and the cryptocurrency will be deposited almost immediately, with it taking less than 5 minutes. The bitcoin is verified to be genuine, and the bitcoin market has not been recorded to lose significant amounts after testing. Conversations with SCP-XXXX-1 is however not possible, with SCP-XXXX-1 replying that they would like to 'ensure their privacy'. The market has had no significant losses after continuous testing, even after ordering ███ bitcoin.
