L100 vs L103

I recently tried to login to my ATT.com account and upon my first attempt was given the following error message:

 

L103: As a security precaution, your account has been locked. For further assistance, you may click the image below to access our live Click to Chat group during the following times: 8:00am – 10:00pm M-F, 8:00am – 9:00pm Sat ET; or call Customer Service at 1-800-331-0500 or dial 611 from your wireless phone.

 

I understand that the account is automatically locked for one hour after 6 failed attempts so this message was a bit disconcerting. Does anyone know the difference between this error message and message L100 where it states the account is only locked for one hour? I just want to know if my login information was compromised because if so, that creates a seperate issue I may have to deal with.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Did you receive the L100 error first and then receive this oneafter trying to login again?

 

Were you able to contact support to get this resolved or do we still need to help out?

Thanks for replying,

 

No, I received the L103 message only. I've received the L100 message in the past and just wanted to know the difference. I've already resolved the issue but I just wanted to get further insight into the problem.

Sorry for the delay, I was out of the office for the holidays. 

 

I'm not sure why you received that message first. You should have gotten the one hour lockout before it's completely locked. Please let us know if it happens again.

Thanks again for the reply. I should probably clarify my question a bit to get the answer I'm looking for. Basically, I just want to know what is the difference in criteria used to determine an L103 error message as opposed to an L100. I'm trying guage whether someone attemtped accessing my account or if was just some sort of of system error? Is that common?

 

Thank you, Jamileh.

The L103 error is like L100's big brother and is implemented when fraud is suspected. 

 

I can't speculate as to what may have led up to you specifically receiving that error before the L100 error but something that appeared to be fraudulent activity would have triggered it.
