    Why I have to give you my identification number.

    Why I have to give you my identification number. I even don't know who you are.
    Why should I give you my identification number. I even don't know who you are.

    Are they grammatical?

    Re: Why I have to give you my identification number.

    The second one is. The first should start with "Why do I have to".

    Re: Why I have to give you my identification number.

    Should it be "I don't even know who you are"?
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    Yes. My error. "I don't even know who you are."

    Re: Why I have to give you my identification number.

    wilbertjim, your questions beginning with 'why' are ungrammatical as they do not end with question marks.
