If I had to GUESS over the internet, the first thing I would do is drop the pan and see if the rods bolts are torqued to spec.
Alot of cheapie rebuilds are done without replacing rod bolts, I've seen more than one engine come apart with a rod knock that had the builder figuring he forgot to torque the rod bolts, but it was actually rod bolt stretch.....

I can't see a cam wiping out that fast and that drastically, but if it did the oil filter should be PACKED with debris IMO.....

Drop the pan, cut the filter and go from there...?
