Anonymous Online Orders?

Suppose a person wants to anonymously order an NIC via postal mail. That way the MAC address is not tied to their name. I understand that alternatives exists, like Walking into a store and buying an NIC with cash, but I am still wondering if it's possible for other reasons. Maybe a physical book on security exploits is unavailable at a local bookstore or electronic format. The security professional might not want to create a record that ties her to the book.

Do all PO Boxes require identification? As far as I know, prepaid debit cards can no longer be purchased without revealing personal information. Are there any exceptions to that or alternatives?

There are private companies that accept mail and forward it to a new address. With anonymous purchases these private services and using multiple private PO Boxes together, it could be interesting.

Go to a (PC) flea market and buy all the nics from a geek who sells them.
