Beware: Internet scam artists using DoD seal

The messages look like official correspondence, but they ask recipients to pay a fine to unlock a personal device.

It is using its Facebook page to spread the word that you should immediately delete a message like that. It said if this happens to you, contact the FBI, whose seals have also been used by hackers to scam Internet victims.
