If they check the receptacle and there is no cash in the box with your number on it, they come and write you a ticket or tow you.
There is also a private parking lot across the small bridge but I do not think its monitored by an attendant (its a monthly pass sort of deal).
You could try Malden Center which is the next stop after Oak Grove, but you may have similar results.
You can also try parking at Wellington. The Wellington lot will probably be full, but there's a huge parking garage connected to the station by skywalk that's $5 to park.
