Ich habe gerade eine E-Mail erhalten, in der folgendes steht:

Für uns zählt das Datum, welches uns die Verwaltung bestätigt. Wir haben jeweils extra nach um diese Bestätigung zu erhalten.

Was bedeutet denn eigentlich das fett markierte genau?

    Der Satz ist kompletter Nonsens. Stelle sicher, dass dies kein Spam / Phishing ist. – πάντα ῥεῖ Oct 3 '19 at 11:32

    The sentence is incomplete. I would guess that the author wanted to write nachgefragt, (or nachgehakt,) instead of nach. – RHa Oct 3 '19 at 11:44

    I'ts a simple typo. "Wir haken jeweils extra nach, um..." – tohuwawohu Oct 3 '19 at 12:33

    Depending on what device the E-Mail was written on, it is also possible that an autocorrection did mess up the sentence. Some people don't re-read what they have written before pressing "send" :-( . Both the suggestions of RHa and tohuwawohu are possible explanations for what the writer intended to write. – Volker Landgraf Oct 3 '19 at 16:53

    @πάνταῥεῖ Ist kein Betrug; es geht um eine ausstehende Schlussrechnung :) – Crazydre Oct 3 '19 at 18:58

As a summary of comments by RAh and tohuwawohu, since comments might be deleted some time:

This sentence is incomplete, at least one word or word-part is missing.
Possible versions of what the sentence should have been:

Wir haken jeweils extra nach, um diese Bestätigung zu erhalten.
Wir haben jeweils extra nachgefragt, um diese Bestätigung zu erhalten.
Wir haben jeweils extra nachgehakt, um diese Bestätigung zu erhalten.

The second and third versions could result in the wrong sentence when the author was inattentive while re-arranging sentence parts (or sloppy copy-paste actions), the first could either be a typo from the author or a mistake made by the autocorrection.
