Signing for mail

Today, I signed for a package for a neighbour, who has just come around to pick it up. And I was wondering, what would then happen if the package were lost or stolen or stolen? Would liability fall to me, as the person who signed for it, to the delivery company for failing to deliver it to the actual recipient, or to the recipient, on the grounds that once it's signed for, it's theirs? Or if the recipient contacted the company who sold them whatever was delivered, would they be able to demand a refund from them, on the grounds that the item was never delivered to them and it's none of their concern whose fault it was? Or what if it got damaged? Would that be my fault? Could the delivery company claim that it was even if it wasn't? Or what if someone else came to pick it up claiming it was for them, when in fact it wasn't? (Seeing as I don't actually know said neighbours.) I'm curious.
