I think you will be successful. I think that after your attorney starts discovery they (the defendants) will realize that they are going to lose and attempt settlement
with you IF they have any monies.
That they don't have monies is always a risk.
But that you claimed fraud - fraudulent debts are NOT dischargerable in bankruptcy
These defendants are a scam and sham.
It's clear that they are going to lose but litigation like this can take awhile. Although there are never any guarantees - it would appear obvious that they were fraudulent and have been caught.
They can say or defend saying anything - that doesn't make it true or correct. There are many people (these being some of them) who lie continuously.
But their lies catch up with them and the facts will show they did lie and did make misrepresentations to you - completely being intentionally fraudulent.
Now your best course of action is to let your attorney start and perform discovery and make it as expensive and time consuming for them as possible. They will beg you to settle because next they will be discharging their attorney because they can't afford to pay him either.
So just believe in your attorney and go through discovery. Sometimes these things take a year or more.
