He should write to the "comptroller" entity and demand that they identify themselves and explain to him why he should pay rent to them. And he should inform them that it is a deceptive trade practice to try to collect money from someone who doesn't owe it to you.

And he should send a copy of this letter to the Attorney General in Austin.
