    Thousand Millions = Billions so it is not incorrect, though a little clumsy.

    So if I told you I won R6,521 million in the Lotto, you will take that as me winning R6 521 000 000 (aka R6,521 billion)?

    If there was no comma, I'd have concurred with you.

    Those millions should be billions Dr Evil, this ain't the 60s anymore...
    Still faulty I see. Either remove the comma or change to billions.

    The comma is a thousands separator, not a decimal, so it's correct as is. But as Urban pointed out, it's a little clumsy. Not sure why the author is scared of the word billion.

    In What to do if you were compromised in the Deeds Data Breach there are odd line breaks in the bullet list (bullets 2-5):

    2. Set up alerts: Build your awareness by setting up alerts that notify you of any changes on your customer profile and of attempts to access your credit status or to set
    up new lines of credit so that you can stop fraudsters in their tracks.
    3. Change all passwords: Shut out attempts at logging into your accounts by changing all of your usernames, passwords and security questions, including those linked to
    your social media accounts and especially those accounts linked to your financial transactions.
    4. Shut down access: Contact all relevant institutions handling your sensitive PII, including your credit providers, medical aid, doctor’s office, and educational
    institutions to instruct them not to take any action on your account unless they’re dealing with you in person. It may seem extreme but is an important step to dissuading and
    blocking would-be identity thieves.
    5. Engage with institutions: By making yourself heard and by ensuring accountability, you can make a meaningful impact to building the necessary safeguards that are
    needed from these institutions to prevent massive data breaches like this from happening again.


    That should look like this:
    2. Set up alerts: Build your awareness by setting up alerts that notify you of any changes on your customer profile and of attempts to access your credit status or to set up new lines of credit so that you can stop fraudsters in their tracks.
    3. Change all passwords: Shut out attempts at logging into your accounts by changing all of your usernames, passwords and security questions, including those linked to your social media accounts and especially those accounts linked to your financial transactions.

    Staff Writer strikes again:

    https://businesstech.co.za/news/moto...-in-a-big-way/

    If you gonna start paragraphs with ",there should be a end with " somewhere.

    “Product restrictions are already being applied to local companies by their foreign Principals particularly due to the lack of availability of clean fuels (low sulphur petrol).
    Where is the end quotation marks?

    There is no such thing as low sulphur petrol, there is low sulphur diesel and ultra low sulphur diesel. Don't believe me? Go google low sulphur petrol.

    Why is principals starting with a capital P?

    Staff Writer, don't post content after your Sunday afternoon drinks...

    If the orator is still being quoted, it is acceptable - if not required - to leave the closing " to the end of the oration, including across paragraphs.
