Say I have a array that connects to point A to point F to point B to point C to point D to point G to Point Final. They could technically trace it back to point A, but that would take an excruciating amount of time or maybe just 2 minutes, but that should be plenty of time to ghost and slip under the radar before your hand-off is even complete.
In theory, that's sorta how some torrent clients work, and also TOR toolkit and browser.
In my eyes, this is the only way you can ever seek to be anonymous.
Won't be good as a jewel thief if you leave a trail to trace back to you, but instead lead them off your trail.
Torrent clients are incredibly easy to work as you're broadcasting your IP to any and all users on the same tracker; and Tor is somewhere between SSH tunnelling and BT.@OP
It can be very easy to trace an IP past proxies depending on the host. US laws dictate that a minimum level of logging that servers have to record, which means that using a US server for a proxy (be that via SSH tunnelling or VPN) can still be traced back if any courts / police demand to see the logs. Also the server itself can be traced to it's owner, so you better have permission from the person who pays those bills
There isn't such thing as true anonymity online. All you can do is slow down the tracing. But if you're after true anonymity then I have to question what it is you're doing that's making you so paranoid.
If you're just trying to by pass things like Google tracking, then there's easy ways to stay anonymous from those services without having to resort to proxies.
