Is this a good deal for a 645?

Is this a good deal? I don't want to get burned on my first attempt at buying and working with Medium Format.

As quoted from my source:
"This is a almost new! Pentax 645! The original price for this package was $3500.00. Included are two lenses, a 75mm2.8 lens, and a 120mm 4.0 lens, also included is the dedicated flash, model af400t." They are asking: $950 for the package.

You should pay less from a private seller than from KEH.
KEH has a 14 day no-questions-asked return policy and includes a 60 day warranty on most used items.

I recently paid a total of about half that (~$500) for a 645, 55, 75 and 150mm lens, 3 inserts and AF400t. Of course, if it were from KEH, it would probably be sold as BGN. Works great, though.
