    Same thing happens to lottery players.  I've had people who know I play the lottery come up to me and say "Being a lottery player, I know you like to gamble.  I'm selling $10 raffle tickets to support a good cause, how many can I sign you up for?"   They think if I have a dollars or two for lottery tickets then surely I must have plenty to spend  on their worth while cause even thought I've never heard of it.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
