    Here is/are

    A: How much are these wallets?
    B: They are one thousand each.
    A: Give me three, please. Here is three thousand dollars./Here are three thousand dollars.

    Is "Here are three thousand dollars" wrong? Thanks for your help.

    "Here are three thousand dollars" is not natural English.
