    Fox as a verb

    Hello.

    Do you use this word as a verb? My translator says that there's a verb which means "outwit".

    I never heard any sentneces with fox as a verb, therefore I'm confused.

    Fraze.it shows nothing. I suppose this verb is an archaism.

    Thanks in advance.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
