    say vs. be said to

    They all have the same meaning? Any difference?
    Which sentence sounds the most natural to you?

    (A) They say that he was a spy during the war.
    (B) It is said that he was a spy during the war.
    (C) He is said to have been a spy during the war.


    Thanks.
