They are not going to be able to incarcerate anyone for violating this law, but if someone wants to go to the trouble (and expense) of pushing things on behalf of the recipients, the violation of the law, if proved, could also be used as part of a civil suit against the malefactors, who will have to provide a means for the recipient to contact the callers.
Mississippi is a class-action defendant's nightmare; those juries love to give away other people's money.
