Tor browser logo

K Edward Lynch:  What’s up with Tor browser??

Fred Krueger: I spent most of the day on the phone and computer dealing
with some insurance agents. some of the time I was waiting for call
backs and during those times
I received at least 4 calls from people
I did not believe were legitimate. They wanted to sell me some kind of
insurance. I do not believe that those calls were coincidence. We have
the Spectrum bundle here. I think there is something fishy at Spectrum.
A few telemarketers maybe but not all insurance sellers.
