I wouldn't really bother unless you are really wanting to hide your IP address from specific sites.  Routing the connections in this way may also possibly slow down the connection as the data will be routed through the third-party proxy servers.  As I said I wouldn't go with this myself.

I am tempted but wonder if anybody else has used this kind of protection,
how accessible is it?

This is a perfectly ok email, connected via transactions initiated by me so
I'm not wondering about the legitimacy of the offer, just is it useable by
us and if so, does it do what is claimed here?

I paste the email as received.
