As I suggested, if you have the time, you may be able to teach yourself how to practice law. You can at least get the lawsuit on file with the court. That will get you before the judge.
Additionally, you might consider going to the police. If it was actual fraud, then it was likely also an unlawful act on their part, and the police may investigate for you as well.
Virtually every county has a law library. You will be able to find the information you need to prepare your pleadings there. If your state has fill-in-the-blank forms, the law library will have copies available. Otherwise, ask the law librarian to show you where the books on Pleading and Practice are located. Generally there are many volumes of Pleading and Practice books from which you can pick the proper one for your situation. While the librarian is typically not a lawyer, and cannot practice law, most are quite willing to assist you in locating the chapter in the Pleading and Practice book which you will need.
Once you have found the appropriate pleading, you will note that in addition to the sample pleading which contains all of the necessary structure for your Pleading, there may also be suggestions to make your pleading more persuasive. Prepare your pleading in accordance with the suggested format in the book, inserting the facts of your case as you know them to be. Then all you will need to do is to draft the pleading on your computer, print it out and file the original with the court while serving the other party, or their attorney, with a copy.
I wish you the best.
