Cannot log in

Every time I try to log into AT&T email on my laptop, it gives me this code:  

"The limit for unsuccessful sign-in attempts has been reached. Select Forgot user ID or Forgot password to restore access.
CARE CODE: 205.2 [LU003]"
How can there be too many sign-in attempts when it is the first attempt in two weeks?!!  So very, very tired of this.
