Mensagem:  eight thousand dollars = $ 8,000.00

decimal point (.) = dot used to separate the integer and the fractional parts of a decimal number

comma (,) = used to make large numbers more readable by separating groups of three digits


It's just the opposite of how it's used in Brazil:

oito mil reais = R$ 8.000,00

For information on how the decimal point is used in each country, refer to:
