" I smells fishy to me but how can I tell if it's really from AOL?
It's not from AOL, its fake. AOL or anyone else would never send this type of request in email.
If you are using aol software to read email, I believe the sender has the blue "authentication" on it which cannot be replicated, meaning on the sender itself not in the email. That will always identify email from aol, but they don't ever send requests like this above
