Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Instances of SCP-XXXX are to be eliminated at once to prevent multiplication. Upon discovery of a possible instance of SCP-XXXX, object will be reviewed by MTF-Rho-9 ("Technical Support") to verify it is an actual instance of SCP-XXXX. Review must be conducted to ensure data similar to SCP-XXXX is not lost. In most cases, this will involve a 24-hour arbitration period prior to deletion of possible SCP-XXXX instances.

Copies of SCP-XXXX instances can be maintained for reference and archival purposes.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon where inaccurate records are created within the SCP Foundation's systems. These records refer to anomalous objects that the Foundation has not discovered. These records refer to objects that appear to have SCP designations assigned to them, but the actual anomalous object does not exist. Instances of SCP-XXXX tend to involve recurring themes and display certain trends, as detailed in Addendum XXXX-1.

Instances of SCP-XXXX appear spontaneously throughout Foundation records. It has been determined that when instances of SCP-XXXX will multiply when left in Foundation records for extended periods of time. Testing with other record-keeping systems is currently pending approval.

The root cause of SCP-XXXX instances is not currently known. However, the current theory1 is that there is still an undiscovered instance of SCP-XXXX within Foundation records.

Copies of SCP-XXXX show no anomalous properties and several have been archived under Addendum XXXX-2 for reference.
