I have a Nigerian friend, 42 years old, with whom I thought is a good friend. She s friendly and church going woman. he became a minister last year and always read the Bible. Last December she came to me and and told me that she is going to spend a month vacation to Nigeria to see her 2 children. She has bought a car, some clothes and toys for her family and have sent everything to Lagos, Nigeria. She has always been able to earn as much as $800-$1,000 as a caregiver and as a certified nurse assistant. Unfortunately, her job on both of them ended 2 weeks short. Both of her clients passed away. She does not have enough money then to pay for the airport taxes and fees. And that was the time, where she asked me to lend her $1,000 and she will pay me back with interest of $500 as soon as she comes back comes January 26, 2014. I have been trying to contact ever since, but she has disappeared on me. We did not have any promissory note written, because I have trusted her. I have always her help her in the past. I have told her that I needed the money to pay my bills and she doesn't need to pay me the interest that she said she would give me. All I wanted is to get my money back. I have tried calling her several times but to no avail. Will I be able to present my case to the court of law?

You can file your papers with the court but the court won't help you find her.
You'll have to find her yourself to be able to serve her with the summons and complaint.
Otherwise, your lawsuit goes nowhere.
