    there seems to have a shady deal

    Hi, teachers.

    Please check this one sentence.

    The police say that there seems to have a shady deal between the large corporation and its subcontractors.

    In the sentence, is "have" correct? Shouldn't it be "be" instead?

    Re: there seems to have a shady deal

    You are thinking along the right lines. I think it needs both "have" and "been".

    "The police say that there seems to have been a shady deal between the large corporation and its subcontractors".
