  • I used curation suite and then they billed me, turned it off, and would not return my calls or emails. I charged the entire suite back with Paypal because of non-use for an entire month. Not more than a week after the money is back in my account Amy Noteworthy, who apparently works there is looking to get revenge and leaves a one star review on my business facebook page! I’d stay as far away from Curation Suite by You Brand Inc. as you can get or suffer their wrath!
