I tried searching this type of scam or I don't even know the name of it and couldn't find anything related.

I am not 100% sure but to my knowledge it seems like it's a fake amazon.com page, since it says http: //www."astore".amazon.​com (external link) the "astore" just threw me off and I just assumed it was a mirror site.

So the deal was $1395 canon 50D+ 18-200 Canon lens

they said to add both the lens and body then go through the checkout and price won't reflect until the last page.. Which I'm assuming after you entered your credit card information, you'll probably be phished already. =X

what do you guys think?

Since the site has already been removed...I would say you guessed right.
