It's a definite scam. Banks do not put a hold on money that is being sent to people and there is no minimum amount that can be sent. Also, banks don't use free AOL email addresses.

Just delete the email and block the buyer and the fake bank. Do not accuse them of being scammers, just stop all contact with them.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
