    basically, i bought something off amazon, it broke so i rang them and asked for a replacement, they sent me one out last week and I have it, however, i have now lost the old broken item so i cannot send it back now...

    could i get away with saying i posted it? and then they'll assume it got lost in the post or something? so i can still keep the new one without paying for it

    When you send a parcel at the post office they give you a receipt. I thing this is prove kind of thing. So they will know if you send it or not.

    Lost in the post or something? Looks like you would not be able to steal a pack of gums, OP. Be honest and tell them the truth!

    What ever you want to call it, it will be treated as a civil matter by the police. Things like this always are unless criminal intent can be proven then perhaps he can be charged but it's highly unlikely to get that far.
