|Assunto:||I don't have money X I have no money???|
The first puts the lexical verb 'have' in the negative with the auxiliary 'don't'. It wouldn't be unusual in a case like this to see the expression 'any money' used.
The second has the lexical verb 'have' unmodified in the positive and the negative sense is carried in the substantive, non-verbal, part of the phrase.
There are numerous other equally correct ways of expressing this unfortunate concept:
I've got no money
I am without money
