Does seem a bit fishy I agree or some sort of alarm bells to sound even being in the same SnG and to be at the same in a cash table is even fishy which leads you to think they definitely do know one and another.
However, if they was intentionally trying to collude they wouldn't use the same sort of names. My guess is that they are new to poker and are friends and got excited at playing in the same tournament and joined a cash table together too. It doesn't mean they are colluding as such as most will go out of their way to hide the fact they are colluding. It could well just be innocent and just playing together not knowing anything about collusion.
Still though, if you believe they was colluding then email support and they will look into it and be able to tell from betting patterns and pots they are involved in if they are in fact cheating or not.
It is strange, maybe you are right. But a new player excitement would make more sense at a 1$ sng or a .2/.5 cash table, and they were at a 6.50 sng (which is probably also not so strange if you are right) but at the 50 nl cash, and thats a bit high for a beginner naive player.

Unless they have been banned already (which may be since players at a 50nl table will not all be clueless and some mails may have been sent simply because of the same sit in/leave table time combined with the names looks a bit weird) then you may have misread the message. It will have said something to the effect that these players are not currently sitting at tables. At least thats what it said for me when I did a search later.
