Home Inspector Jamie Hawks discovers a "boot leg" ground at a wall outlet. Houses built before 1963 had ungrounded two prong outlets. When a three prong outlet is installed on the old circuit it will still be ungrounded. The video demonstrates how a ungrounded circuit can be wired with a false ground to "trick" a home inspectors outlet tester.
