Wether you signed for it or not, you got it. One, that doesn't make you safe. Two, amazon is a large company...I'm pretty sure their resources for prosecution exceed yours if they need them two. Three, Karma's a ***** dude, don't jack with it. Four, no matter what way you slice it, anything other than returning it is fraud and theft.
And think about it this way, doing stuff like keeping/selling it like you're considering is what raises the prices on ALL of us.
Do the right thing....don't be THAT guy, you're better than that...

but seriously folks, if this has happened to anyone else before I'd value your input
They've done this to me multiple times before, know what they did? Absolutely nothing.
They're not going to prosecute you because the worth of the item, quite frankly, isn't high enough.
You don't have to send the item back. You are, however, legally obliged to allow them (or a third party) to come collect the item, whatever condition it may be in. Until you refuse to allow them to collect it, this is civil, not theft. Period. Everyone saying that they're going to threaten prosecution, etc., don't know what they're talking about, least of all considering who would sue over the cost of an item that cheap.
The number one thing to remember is: Because until they send someone to your home to pick up the item (you do not have to lift a finger in this respect) and that would probably cost them a solid portion of the item (driving wage, fuel, etc., notwithstanding having a third party get it. Police will get the item, but someone still has to come pick it up from the station), there's no way in hell they'll actually do any of that.
Sony bought Konami and will release a DDR game for the Nintendo DS. In this game, you set your DS on the floor and stomp on it till it no longer functions.
As someone who used to work in online retail, I can tell you that they know that you have the Xbox, and that you owe them money. That being said, there's not much they can do about it, save for blacklist your account (and IP, shipping address, etc.).
They're probably too busy to contact you about it, but if they pull up your account for any reason, there's a good chance that they'll notice the discrepancy. Of course, the customer service rep probably wont do anything about it unless you make their day difficult.
