Why not? In a 100% free market, they don't break any laws.

Yes they do. Fraud is the same as stealing.

If there is no actual signed contract involved, then what free market laws are being broken? Is tricking suckers out of their money illegal? Then why all the uproar (not necessarily from you, but from many free marketists) about home owners who were lied to into loans that they couldn't afford?

A fool and his money are soon parted. I see no reason to legislate in order to ensure that they are parted by less overt means.

There doesn't need to be a signed contract for there to be a contract. If I own a store, and sell you a bag of what I tell you is candy, but it turns out to be dirt, I have defrauded and stolen from you.

I'm not sure what you mean about the home owners. Could you elaborate?

I think you will find in the traditional free market advocates, one of their main criteria was people making decisions in what they judged as being in their best interest, trouble is if people are making decisions based on fraud/deception/lies etc this changes the what people judge to be in their best interest. If this happens on a regular systematic basis the free market ceases to exist, and in its place a crony capitalism takes place.

Truth/correct information etc is necessary for the "free market" to work.

Caveat emptor. Some free market judges will rule in your favor on fraud, and you can try to enforce it on that. But it wont be as universally condemned as murder and rape, theft, etc...

You mean that you don't know that about the home owners that were lied to in order to get them to sign contracts that they didn't understand (due to being lied to) and which they couldn't afford?

Free Markets =/= no laws. That's a common misconception. Fraud is protected against as it is tantamount to left. A free market simply means that things like inflation aren't manipulated by government.

You may be confusing anarcho-capitalist versions of free market ideals with minarchist views of free markets.
