I couldn't help but notice that they insisted that the credit card information had been tokenized, but gave no mention of ACH information. Considering the article mentioned that the money had vanished from the victim's personal bank account, I'd suspect that they were storing bank account:routing numbers in plain text.
Which, as everyone knows, is not PCI compliant.

Chances are that the covers were ripped off and mailed back to the printers, as shipping unsold magazines was too heavy a cost burden on those running the magazine racks. After 'stripping' the books/magazines, the retailers were honor-bound to destroy them.
How they wound up under the bush is a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, covered with flaky crust and baked until golden brown.
