Using DO/DOES as a Helping Verb, in a present perfect tens question


"Does anyone have received any package on behalf of me?"


Is this question grammatically correct?


And what if I am thinking of an answer such as 'Yes, I do have received / No, I do not have received anything'. as way to emphasize the action.

Have is already helping the verb received.  You don't need a second helping verb.  Don't use any form of do in any of your examples.


Has anyone received a package on my behalf?

Yes, I have received it.

No, I have not received it.
