Another false competition seems to be on the net again

Received an e-mail with the regulation of a new cartoon contest:
THE INTERNATIONAL CARTOON COMPETITION 2015 -- MADE IN CHINA.
The themes of the competition:
a) MADE IN CHINA
b) FREE.
Participant send electronic edition (JEPG, 300 dpi) to: zjjxnnsg@126.com . If your works are selected, you send the original works to us.
Well, to whom to send the original works if selected?
To the e-mail address that seems to be the only organisator for the time being?
If not selected, what would happen with all the 12 cartoon ideas (maximum 6 each theme) of each participating cartoonist? Plagiarized, copied, sold to third parties?!
It is already 3 years now that we haven't had a pirate cartoon competition and finally it emerged again. Somebody is looking for the original ideas of honest creative cartoonists to paint or sell cartoons by his/her name! Not very difficult to guess the name(s)!
No cartoonist will participate I hope, no website shall put the regulation or promote this fishy competition MADE IN CHINA.
If any cartoon website editor doesn't want to belong to the gang of thieves of cartoon ideas, s/he should take the emergency action and delete the false announcement of the fake competition.
See the recent history of fake cartoon competitions here.
