does VPN help keep you 'safer' from online scams?

In today's world of scams from every corner of the world.... We order online very rarely. We don't need the convenience of a package at the door when we get home. That said, do VPN's carry any 'hiding' when we do order online? We have found out that every time we do order a large item from Home Depot, Lowes, we get random 'we need to confirm your order from Home Depot' type emails. We actually order at the store and not online. We don't use payment type cards. Is someone in these stores leaking customer info/how does someone know we ordered?? Just some thoughts in this world of scams. (and no- we confirmed with the stores that they did not need further info on our order). Thanks all.
