Potential ghostwriting company? (PlagiarismWatch.org)

A remarkable post by PlagiarismWatch (on September 20th, 2016) is about a potential ghostwriting company and a predatory journal publishing these papers, targeting Chinese authors. Especially the figures in the papers show outstanding similarities, and are submitted and published in the same year (sometimes even the same month!) and therefore couldn’t plagiarise each other. Yet, what is the change that different research groups find such similar results at the same time?
