Q: I think #2 is incorrect and #1 is correct. Or I think #1 is more natural. What do you think ,especially in relation with the preposition 'to' ?

1. A fabulous story was told to me.

    You're right about 1 being correct and 2 being incorrect. But even 1 doesn't sound natural. I'd say I heard a fabulous story or Someone told me a fabulous story. (When tell means command, there's no to. The teacher told the pupils to be quiet.)
