Kitty,

First of all, what "bank"?  Linden Lab does not allow you to use a bank account as a payment method, at least not directly.  They only accept major credit cards or a verified PayPal or Skrill account.

You can use a RL bank account to verify (back up) your PayPal account, but you must always be careful to actually have the money in your PayPal balance before incurring a charge from Linden Lab.  They will not wait several days for money to go from your bank to PayPal to them, they insist on instant payment.  If they don't get it, the transaction will fail.

Another and different problem could be that you used the Limit Buy ("Best Rate") purchase option.  The LindeX is not a bank or a store, it's a currency exchange that facilitates buying and selling $L between residents.  If you choose a Limit Buy, you're making an offer to buy X amount of $L at some specified exchange rate, say $L270 = $1USD. Your order will remain open until 1) all the previously placed orders at your rate or below are filled, and 2) there are sellers willing to meet your price.  Until that happens, your money will remain "in escrow".

If you get tired of waiting, go to your account page, LindeX section, Manage, My $L Orders, and cancel your open order.  The money will go into your $USD balance and you can then use it to make a Market Rate ("Instant") $L purchase.
