Do you think anyone actually buys these kind of deals? I would hope that even someone who knows nothing about photography would at least check out the items to see if it is worth it or not before dropping $1.7k?
Where there is ignorance there will always be some one ready to exploit it. sigh
There are a number of people who fall for such deals - typically people who "upgrade" directly from a P&S. I know at least two of them from the local photography club.

16-35L, 24-70L II, 70-200L II, 100-400L, 50L, 85L II, 135L, 24TSE, 40, 100 macro, 18-55 II, 55-250 II, 600RT x 4
I come here to learn something new, not to learn how bad my gear is - I know that already ;-)!
