There is an increasing public awareness of virtual offenses. These offenses existed also in the past but, since general public is more tech-savvy, there is more news on the topic in mass media. The aim of the paper is to investigate whether personality traits and gender are linked to experiencing virtual offenses. With regards to virtual offenses, the focus is on cyber-bullying, identity theft, stalking, phishing, scam, and harassment. Big Five Inventory-2 is used to measure personality traits. With regards to the results, victims of cyber-bullying are more extravert and more agreeable; identity theft is linked to more extraversion; stalking is linked to more extraversion and more negative emotionality; phishing is linked to less consciousness and being a man; scam is linked to less consciousness, more negative emotionality and being a man; and harassment is linked more negative emotionality.
