I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question but can your internet service provider see that you're using TOR? I don't want the police to show up at my door asking me why I was searching for gifts cards at a discounted price lol. If you connect to VPN before loading up TOR would you ISP see that you connected to a VPN?
- Disclaimer: I have not bought anything with TOR or plan to. This is a hypothetical question that is for educational purposes.
