Care Code:205.2 [LU003]

I'm trying to login an AT&T email address that is through yahoo.  When I enter the userid ([email scrubbed])  and the password it comes back with ....   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].  If I go to reset the password it comes up with a screen asking for the UserID and Last Name.  I have tried everything I can think of for the Last name but no success.  I'm not the one that originally setup the account therefore don't know all the information.

Thank you for your follow-up but I have since gotten the problem resolved.  I ended up having to deleting the account and then readding it.  

Again, thanks for your response.
