    it's simple past because there is a time expression here. we don't use time expression with present perfect.

    The quote sounds like a non-native speaker of English. Note, for the last week, for the last hour, for the last month, for the last 10 years all include the moment of speaking and therefore require present perfect.

    I have not seem them.
    yes because it's a period of time.
    but saying: I did not see them last month.
    because there is a specific time, which is last month.
    Am I right !!
