possible pre-game alliance

Game: 136564. Deo Vindice
Suspect player: Austria and Turkey. Anon player game, don't know the users.
Reasons: I'm playing Russia, we're in 1902. The Austrian and Turkish players have been messaging me for most of 1901, both trying to get me to make moves which I suspected were meant to be a trap. This by itself is not suspicious. However, the game is a 24/12/12 game, so the amount of time one can talk is fairly short. The two started messaging me with their push to have me make my 'bad' moves almost from the beginning, within a half-hour or so of the game start. I'm not saying that it is impossible for two players to set up a long-term strategy to screw the third within 30 minutes of a game start, but it is a bit odd. Furthermore, the style of writing is very similar, with similar idioms used in writing. They seem completely comfortable leaving SC's undefended against each other, also odd for a 24/12/12 game since the com times are fairly short. Last but not least, the few times I was messaging both of them, they replied to me at nearly the same times, and, again, using very similar language, like 'you have no clue what's coming, do you?'.

I would like to do a more thorough investigation and take a look at who they are, but it's an anon game, and I can't. Please take a look, and I am sorry if I am wasting your time on this.
