Yes, stay away from those deals. If they're not outright fraudulent, then they are at minimum full of really cheap and nasty stuff that will be of no long term benefit to you.

Just get the camera and basic lens from a reputable store. They really don't have very high margins, and if a you see a deal elsewhere that undercuts them by a significant amount, chances are there's a catch in there somewhere.

After all of the responses I've received, I decided to purchase the Canon 60D, plus the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, and the Canon EF 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lenses. I've checked numerous online vendors and the local Best Buy. Even some of the so-called "recommended" online vendors look kind of shady. I think I will go with B&H Photo. They have the best "average" prices for what I am looking for. I know there are a lot of vendors spouting lower prices, but the reviews speak louder...and possibly truer. when I finally make my purchase and receive it all, I will give an update. Thanks everyone for the info.
