Can Market Markers Collude to fix prices?

I am just learning about what market makers are and how they facilitate markets in sock exchanges.

I was wondering if it is possible for couple of market markers to collude to fix the price of a stock?

Based on my understanding of the role their play, it seems like this is something market markers can do.

Is this the case? What prevents them colluding in practice?
