"(...) but I don't have any money" should be accepted.

I don't have "got" money? Can someone please tell me I'm not going crazy when I think this is beyond bad English?

Sounds even worse than a google translate.

"I haven't any money" was marked wrong, but it is identical in meaning to "I have no money".

Duo is weird with contractions - sometimes they're accepted and sometimes they're not. Furthermore, "I haven't any money" is definitely more British-English sounding than American-English (which I think Duo has its guidelines set by).

This made me think of a poker table scene: "I would love to match you, but I do not have money." My answer was not accepted.
