    • So we see the two large and swift Sea level rises  with the earlier one bang on the nose datewise   We see the layout of the world around the straights and Azores circa 10,000 bce   So what else are we looking for   A 'nesos' larger than Libya and Asia   Large fertile plain with a small 'mountain' "Bordering on the sea and extending through the center of the whole island there was a plain, which is said to have been the fairest of all plains and highly fertile; and, moreover, near the plain, over against its center, at a distance of about 50 stades, there stood a mountain that was low on all sides " " all those sweet-scented stuffs which the earth produces now, whether made of roots or herbs or trees, or of liquid gums derived from flowers or fruits. The cultivated fruit [i.e., of the vine] also, and the dry [i.e., corn], which serves us for nutriment, and all the other kinds that we use for our meals--the various species of which are comprehended under the name ‘vegetables’--and all the produce of trees"   Elephants/mammoths - Lots of animals (migration path) " n abundance all the timbers that a forest provides for the labors of carpenters; and of animals it produced a sufficiency, both of tame and wild. Moreover, it contained a very large stock of elephants; for there was an ample food-supply not only for all the other animals which haunt the marshes and lakes and rivers, or the mountains or the plains, but likewise also for this animal, which of its nature is the largest and most voracious. "         Atlas' siblings realm was Facing  Cadiz 'toward' the straights " when he had divided all the island of Atlantis into ten portions, he assigned to the first-born of the eldest sons his mother's dwelling and the allotment surrounding it, which was the largest and best; and him he appointed to be king over the rest, and the others to be rulers, granting to each the rule over many men and a large tract of country. And to all of them he gave names, giving to him that was eldest and king the name after which the whole island was called and the sea spoken of as the Atlantic, because the first king who then reigned had the name of Atlas. And the name of his younger twin-brother, who had for his portion the extremity of the island near the pillars of Herakles up to the part of the country now called Gadeira after the name of that region "     Copper and gold mines the island itself furnished most of the requirements of daily life,--metals, to begin with, both the hard kind and the fusible kind, which are extracted by mining, and also that kind which is now known only by name but was more than a name then, there being mines of it in many places of the island,--I mean orikhalkon (mountain-copper)     autokhthones -       * So its not likely to be a purely coastal area such as the sunken lands off Cadiz are likely to have been   * Its away from the straights past the Gaderius realm   * It has a large plain which seems to be on a migratory path including elephants/mammoths (viable until ... circa 11,000bce)   * It has extensive woods/forests   * It has mines for copper and gold at least          
    • This is a very common situation I'm afraid and the reason why a visit would need to be made (before a payment proposal could be accepted) is outlined under Item 7.3 of the Explanatory Memorandum supporting the Taking Control of Goods Fees Regulations 2014 which states as follows:     http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2014/1/pdfs/uksiem_20140001_en.pdf

Afternoon Folks,

 

 

I am Michael, 24 years old, and I have just had some news I am to be expecting my first child.

 

 

First of all I would like to say sorry for how stupid I was 2 years when I took products out with Brighthouse.

 

 

At the time I had just got my own place, and I needed a TV, I then got two things I didn't need a PlayStation and a Phone.

It all comes to £40 a week, which normally I can afford. But I am now moving in with my girlfriend, she knows I have a bill every week for £40, but she doesn't know its brighthouse, I am ashamed to tell her.

 

 

But last week I informed her that the bill would start to go down. As I belived that next month my TV would be 104 weeks old and I would no longer have to pay for it. I pay £14 for it, 104 weeks means ive paid £1400, for a TV normally costing £400. very excessive!

My store rudely advised my I actually had a full year left, I was a little shocked and also ****ed off, as it might not sound a lot £14 but I cant afford it..

 

 

Normally I would of been more reasonable but at the time of taking the product out I was almost sure the lady said 104 weeks, I remember discussing the amount it cost at the time, I really feel miss sold on this. But regardless they say they have my signature on the agreement.

 

 

What is my position on this, has anyone had any experience of reducing payments or stop paying?

I need to get these payments down to £15 a week for everything? I cant hand them in I have invested a lot of my money in these products?

 

 

Thanks

Michael

Thank you fkofilee

 

 

But if I have signed for 3 years, which is possible, where do I stand?

Are they likely to reduce my payments?

I really don't want to hand it in, I paid nearly 1500 pound for this product and more on other products

Lesson to learn; Brighthouse are a pain and persistent.

You wont have to hand it in as youve paid over 1/3 of the total cost. it would be subject to a court order for them to take it back but you cant just stop paying. If you are in financial difficulties then maybe its time to start considering the future. How far through are you with you PlayStation and phone?

I had the playstation for a year, and the Phone for 14 months.

 

 

I don't want to stop paying I just need to reduce even slightly.

 

 

I have learnt my lesson, it seemed a great idea at the time, but after the third or fourth payment it becomes frustrating.

I don't know why but im really stressing about this, I was okay until the staff was so rude I got incredible worked up.

 

 

They don't have my correct contact details, so I could just run away and not hear from them in a while. But I am not this kind of person, I just want the payments reducing.

3 years @ £14.00 a week for a television ?? that is £2,184.00 !!

 

This is absolutely shameful - I am assuming that you would have been paying the mandatory insurances within this ?

We could do with some help from you.

Do you have a copy of the agreement you signed ?

 

If not, then you must ask for one. Brighthouse, being the tightasses they are, will want £1 for this, they cannot charge you a penny more.

No, what you need to do is to write a "short - bullet pointed" complaint. They wont read a letter that is not contained on one page - or if they did, then they would likely miss something.

 

As advised by Conniff above, you need to obtain copies of the agreement before doing anything.

 

Your complaint would be based on the fact that you believed the contract was for 104 weeks (2 years). However, one of the store's representative has now advised that it is for 3 years - that it is obvious that there are insurances that you neither asked for nor required (and you want these refunded) - that had you been aware how much this item would cost over the period of 2 years, let alone 3 !, you would never have taken it on.

 

Your financial situation has now changed and you are no longer able to afford the weekly payments as agreed if the contract is to run for another 52 weeks.

 

That you expect your complaint to be dealt with swiftly and if no response within 14 days you will be escalating your complaint to the Ombudsman.

Thank you for your help again.

 

 

I am going to pay the full amount tomorrow, as I normally pay Fridays, but on Saturday I am going into store with a letter addressing my issues (bullet pointed)

And I will pay for my agreement £1 so I can identify the amount im paying in insurance fees.

 

 

Thank you for all your help again.

I wouldn't do anything until you have a copy of the agreement in your hand. That request should be your first contact with BH.
