So here's the picture: you have a stock 69 Squareback (would be a 
1600) about which you know nothing except that you think that it's 
stock and you have observed that the stock fuel pump runs with the 
key off.  You need to get a copy of the following:

Volkswagen Official Service Manual
Type 3 Fastback and Squareback 1968-1973
published by Robert Bentley, Cambridge, Mass, 1974
ISBN 0-8376-0057-X / LPV 997 383 / VSQU
(excellent book, complete and well written)

Only after studying this will you have the tools at hand to attack 
the problem, and you will save yourself the purchase price many 
times over.  If you are unable or unwilling to do this you will need 
to find someone in your area who can.

Where are you located?

In any case it sounds like the fuel pump has been miswired by someone 
who "fixed" it without understanding it.  There is no way it 
should run with the key off.  You now get to reap the benefits of 
that enlightened repair.  I believe it was Everett on this list that 
mentioned something about being automatically suspicious of anything 
the PO mentioned he had "fixed."

Words to live by.
