I did it with a $650 iPad pro 2 weeks ago. I had to file a police report but I got the refund and my account is still active. My account is a 6 year old Prime account though, with plenty of legit orders and that was my first time trying it.

1.) Yes .

2.) It will tell you who it is shipped by (Amazon or third party) and if it is fulfilled by amazon below or next to the "add to cart" button.

3.) There is really no way to know. My $650 iPad was sold by a 3rd party vendor but fulfilled by Amazon and it didn't require a signature. I ordered a $1200 MacBook a few months ago and that required a signature. It may depend on the item or the value.

This is exactly why I'm not too scared about getting caught. I have a shrink wrapping set-up so I can re-shrink wrap it so it looks like I never even opened it. So if they do open the box I can claim that I never opened it and there would be no proof that I did. Secondly, Walmart employees have a history of stealing from their own store so there'd be reasonable doubt.

This actually happened to me with a memory card I bought once. I opened it and nothing was inside. I was scared that they wouldn't believe me so I just returned it without saying anything and bought another one.

I just tested it out. I bought a $700 tablet at 6pm and returned it at 9:30 pm and they did not open the box or even ask me any questions. I told them that I needed a different color that I knew they didn't have in stock. I paid with a debit card though, which is why they let me return it after 9pm and without a manager present.
So I'm going to get e prepaid debit card when I do it for real, so it looks less suspicious.

I’m going to do a test run today and let you all know how it goes. I’m going to buy a $600 electronic and legitimately return it to see if they open the shrink wrapped box. If they don’t I’ll try the empty box return tomorrow at a different location. If I get caught I’ll just play dumb and outraged, there would be no proof that I took it. And there have been several cases where people have received the wrong thing in the box at Walmart, anyways.
