When Bad Grammar Happens to Nigerians (or Indians)

Yeah! So I won this lottery...at least according to this Nigerian (or maybe Indian) born British Finance Ministry personnel.
Here is the mail that I had received. Hmm, but he does not even know his country's name.

Is it Britain or Martian?

Okay! So, how can I claim my prize? Here are the details:


I am all in, where should I send my bank details to?

Hey! It's not over yet! They are not just sending a prize, they are also giving me a can of worms! How cozy!









That was not just bad grammar, that was bad Photoshop too!

What is the difference between 'there', 'they're' and 'their"?

The word "their" is used to mean something that belongs to a group of people. see the examples:

Where is their car?Look at their dirty shoes.Their marks were poor.
The word 'they're' is a shortened version of 'they are'. See the following sentences:

They are going to the park.I think, they are a bunch of idiots.

'There' is used to show a place.

I saw the thief over there.Let us search over there. 'There' is also used to mean something that exists: There are three chairs in the room.There is no place for us to sit.There is no shortcut to success.
